Biography - A Short Wiki
British actor whose career spanned over half a century with roles on Doctor Who Marriage Lines, The Good Life, and Ever Decreasing Circles.
He was married to Ann Davies, whom he met at Liverpool Repertory Company. They had two children together.
I was 20, I was an amateur from 14 but my first professional role was at 22.
I have been in the series for over 3 years – 3 series. There will be a fourth series next year which of course I won’t be in because I’m now dead. So in total I appeared in 25 episodes.
I knew absolutely nothing about acting, and had to be taught everything. Some people are born naturals and know how to walk, talk and hold themselves. I didn’t and had to learn everything.
I prefer theatre but TV keeps you well known.
I reluctantly left the series because a) my age. I’m 68 tomorrow and time is very precious for me to spend time at home with my family and especially with the grandchildren. They’re aged 7 and 5. After three years I became homesick for my home.
