    (February 7, 1942-March 14, 2007)
    Born in London, United Kingdom
    Birth name was Alan Leonard Hunt
    Portrayed Frederick Norton in ‘Upstairs, Downstairs’ (1974-75) and Mike Gambit in ‘The New Avengers’ (1976-77)
    Appeared in the films ‘The World Is Full of Married Men’ (1979), ‘Licensed to Love and Kill’ (1979), ‘Bloodbath at the House of Death’ (1984), ‘It Couldn’t Happen Here’ (1987), ‘Fierce Creatures’ (1997), and ‘The Riddle’ (2007)
    He spent three months in military prison after jumping ship in New Zealand while serving in the Merchant Navy.
    He was married three times, divorced twice.
    After ‘The New Avengers,’ his most prominent role was as a pitchman for Nescafe coffee.
    His name was used as Cockney rhyming slang for the c-word.
    He was two when his father died in World War II.
    He was a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre.
    He collapsed on stage during the comedy ‘Absurd Person Singular’ after suffering a heart attack (2002); the audience thought it was part of the show until a cast member shouted, ‘Is there a doctor in the house? I’m serious!’ (He later said it was the greatest applause he got during his stage career.)
