Christopher Cazenove obituary

Actor who found his greatest fame as Ben Carrington in Dynasty

Christopher Cazenove, who has died aged 64 after falling ill from septicaemia in February, always dreamed of being a film star, although his father – a brigadier in the Coldstream Guards – wanted him to follow in his footsteps. In the event, when Cazenove fulfilled his acting ambitions, he did so by a military route, making his name as the blue-eyed, clean-cut hero Lieutenant Richard Gaunt in The Regiment (1972-73).

The drama series traced the fortunes of the Cotswolds Regiment at the turn of the 19th century – from the Boer War to service in India – through the lives of two families, the Gaunts and the Brights. Cazenove's fame was confirmed when he was featured on the cover of Radio Times, and television was the medium in which he achieved his greatest success, above all in the glossy American soap opera Dynasty.
