Personal Quote:

I can't leave the profession - I have needs like everyone else. But I would have preferred to follow something more solitary that didn't depend upon an entire organization to make it happen. In filming many people directly affect the outcome of your performance on screen. An actor is just a cog, after all. See more »

From 1950 to 1957 he attended one of the first new comprehensives, Haverstock School, where he was a prefect, and, in his last year, Head Boy. He was good at sports, especially the sprint races, and studied Geography and History at A-level. See more »
