Why did John Thaw limp?

Answer

There are many theories about why John Thaw had a limp, the most common one being that he tripped while running to catch a school bus at age 15. However, his actress wife, Sheila Hancock, noted in her autobiography that John Thaw's grandfather also had a limp and John always copied him as a boy.

John had an car accident in his 20s, after which his limp became more prominent. John Thaw was one of Britain's best-loved actors. Born in Manchester in the northwest of England in 1942, he was married to Sheila Hancock from 1973 until his death from throat cancer in 2002.
