William "Billy" Albert Murray (born 6 October 1941) is an English actor, best known for playing Don Beech in The Bill from 1995 to 2004, Johnny Allen in the BBC soap opera EastEnders from 2005 to 2006, Captain John Price in the video games Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Murray has four children. A son and daughter from his first marriage to Maureen, and two daughters from his second marriage to Elaine. Jamie Murray, one of his daughters from his second marriage is an actress who is best known for starring in the television series Hustle, as well as playing Lila Tournay in season two of Dexter.
In 1998 Murray appeared in court after he and 3 other men allegedly attacked two men who they believed were supplying drugs to their daughters, including Murray's then 14 year old daughter Lizzie from his second marriage. His daughter ran away from school and home, was "descending into an underworld of drugs" and was hospitalised after overdosing in June 1998. Murray revealed that he suffered a nervous breakdown and slept rough on the set of The Bill for months as a court order banned him from living in his home county of Essex after he was charged with intimidating a witness involved in the case. He also admitted that the court case had put a strain on his marriage. Murray was cleared of assault, having claimed that at the time he was "suffering from a mouth abscess and a cracked collarbone and was in no condition to hit anyone".
One of the men attacked was quoted as saying that they wished the case had never gone to court, stating "I deserved everything I got".
In April 2011, it was reported that Murray had been charged with assault of his wife Elaine and daughter Lizzie following "an alleged alcohol-fuelled late-night row" at their home in Chigwell, Essex. In July 2011, it was confirmed that the assault case against Murray had been dropped.
Outside of acting, Murray is involved in property investment and owns and rents out lock-ups, flats and garages across East London.
He is a West Ham United football club fan, and a supporter of the Conservative Party.
