Personal Quote:

[Last words]: Channel 5 is all shit, isn't it? Christ, the crap they put on there. It's a waste of space.

Trivia:

His headshots were used as the portrait models for the character John Tracy of the popular animated series Thunderbirds (1960). Faith's boyish and dashing appearance and attractive blonde hair were perfectly matched by talented model artist Mary Turner, who also used headshots of Charlton Heston for the character's profile.
