Charles was only four years when he lost his father. 

After that, his single mother took him to her relatives at Plymouth, where he spent his early childhood and got an education. 

He completed his high school with a major in design and photography. Later, when he joined Drama Club in college, he realized that he wanted to be an actor. 

At first, he worked in London theatre as a costume designer and stagehand. It was in 1970 that he got the opportunity to act in a play.

During the mid to late 1970, he was invited to the Royal Shakespeare Company. There he grabbed the lead role in 'Coriolanus' and New Castle.' 

Additionally, he also worked for other theatres including Barbican. His involvement in the theatre let him work with the production of the legendary playwright. 

Later, he was offered to act in television series and films. His popular series after Games of Thrones is 'And Then There Were None, and 'Velvet Fingers.

The movie that helped him to get fame and flourish as an actor is 'The Phantom of the Opera' and 'Rebecca.'

Wedding before becoming an established artist

It is not known either Oliver has his wedding or not. Taking about his father Charles, he held his wedding with Joanna Haythorn in 1970

Charles met Joanna when he was only nineteen years young boy. After meeting her for the first time, he fell in love with her. 

At that time, he was a struggling actor and working hard to uplift his career. 

However, he did not wait for success to happen and decided to go get married even before becoming an established artist. 

After four years of wedding, the couple welcomes their first baby, Oliver Dance. Again in 1980, they are blessed with a daughter, Rebecca Dance.
