Born - 17 August 1939, Blackburn, Lancashire, England
Died - 2 December 2015

Oval-faced, slimly-built, suave British actor with slightly receding dark hair and aristocratic bearing, good at sneering villains, and very successful on UK TV in the 1970s, especially in the series Callan, Colditz and Raffles, the latter giving him a rare sympathetic role. He had begin as a boy actor on BBC radio and played youthful roles in low-budget British films: No Way Back (1949), The Girl on the Pier (1953), Adventure in the Hopfields (1954), The Brain Machine (1955) and Fun at St Fanny's (1955). As an adult, TV kept him furiously busy, but there was also the odd film: The Flesh and the Fiends (1960), The Damned (1961), Performance (1970), Tower of Evil (1972), To the Devil a Daughter (1976), Escape to Athena (1978), The Monster Club (1980), then much TV until Jefferson in Paris (1995), The House of Angelo (1997), American Cuisine (1998) and Two Men Went to War (2002), his last, although he continued acting on TV until 2011. He married actress Susan Skipper, who survives him. He died from Parkinson's Disease.
