During World War II he was a junior radio announcer, reporting the news for the BBC. His acting break came when he played Horatio in Laurence Olivier‘s Hamlet (1948), and in which his “fine work” was noted by The New York Times. Then came Catesby in Olivier’s film of Richard III, and Paris in Romeo and Juliet (1954). He also had supporting roles in Quo Vadis (1951), Ivanhoe (1952), Background (1953), The Guns of Navarone (1961), Life for Ruth (1962) and International Velvet (1978).[
Anyone who knows me are aware that I am a bit of a movie buff. Over the past few years I have been collecting signed photographs of my favourite actors.
