He was awarded the CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2009 Queen's New Years Honours List for his services to Drama.
Kenilworth, Warwickshire, England [December 2008]
He hadn't intended to be an actor but during the war he hated his job as a kitchen porter at the Strand Corner House so he took the opportunity to play a walk on part in a West End revival of the musical 'Chu Chin Chow'. From there he was given a small speaking part in 'The Petrified Forest' in 1942. Although untrained he had little difficulty in finding regular acting roles but conscious of his inexperience took speech and singing lessons under Amanda Ira Aldridge, the daughter of Shakespearean actor Ira Aldridge. Gaining experience acting in over 70 repertory productions around the country in five years he then made his film debut in 1951 in 'Pool of London'.
With the death of Olaf Pooley on July 14, 2015, he is the oldest surviving "Doctor Who" cast member. He played Glyn Williams in Doctor Who: The Tenth Planet: Episode 1 (1966) and Doctor Who: The Tenth Planet: Episode 2 (1966).
