In the A-ha music video “Take On Me” who was the actor that portrayed the second evil motorcyclist? (The one with the 13 helmet who gets punched by Morten Harket)

I understand the first one was played by Phillip Jackson, but what about the other guy? I have a photo of him, but I still don’t know his name.

In this picture, he’s the one on the viewers’ right:

The older one standing next to Bunty Bailey

    @closevoters This is definitely on-topic. Briefly looking through the video, there’s a scene with a comic book’s panels moving and a hand popping out of it, among other things. Commented Jul 28, 2019 at 18:38

    @Shreedhar watch the video...it’s a story with very clear science fiction/fantasy elements. Commented Jul 29, 2019 at 2:04
  • IMDb unfortunately doesn’t list his name, are there any other places I could possibly find out?

IMDB now lists him as Alfie Curtis.

Alfie Curtis' portrait from his IMDB PageCropped close up of the character in question

The nose and eyes make the resemblance unmistakable.

    He played the guy in the Star Wars Cantina bar scene who says, "He doesn't like you. I don't like you either!"
