Keith Baxter was born on April 29, 1933 in Newport, Monmouthshire, Wales as Keith Baxter-Wright. He is an actor, known for Merlin (1998), Berlín Blues (1988) and Chimes at Midnight (1965).
Was chosen to play the role of "Octavian" in the Rouben Mamoulian production of Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra (1963), and some minutes of him on film still exist. Baxter was interviewed for Cleopatra: The Film That Changed Hollywood (2001). When Taylor finally recovered from pneumonia and they moved the production to Italy (they had built a fake Alexandria harbor outside of London!), Baxter had other commitments.
