View Full Version : Who was this actor?
This guy was in films in the 60's/early 70's, can't remember the name of any of them. He had very blond curly hair and blue eyes which made him look angelic, but a mouth that made him look sadistic - quite thick, pouty bottom lip. We're not sure he actually played Nazi types but it's the sort of role you could imagine him in. Sorry it's such a vague description, any suggestions anyone?
Was he always blonde?? i immediately thought of Terence Stamp, but he's only been blonde in a few films
Max Von Sydow?
Hi Sixtyten, no not Terence Stamp or Max V S. Should have mentioned he's British.
I'm sure that IS Terrence Stamp.
The picture on the right is from Billy Budd (1962)
We know that Flash, but it's not who the OP was looking for:)
Oops, mixed up posts - scrolling too fast. My mistake.
Edward Fox sprang to mind, but not sure if his eyes are blue.
Not as famous as any of those. He was memorable because he was distinctive looking rather than famous. I could imagine him playing a baddie in something like The Saint (that's not to say he did).

Brilliant Danny! That's the guy. Thank you :)
Born to play Nazis ;)
According to your link Danny he was in The Prisoner - must have been an episode on the tape that got chewed before I had a chance to watch it through :rolleyes:
Born to play Nazis ;) Lol, yep, definately a "boy's films" actor.
Danny beat me to it, Darren Nesbitt
I was racking my brains there to think of who you were on about op...I'm absolutely amazed at Danny coming up with the right guy so quickly. Fair play Danny, you must have paranormal powers:).
Sounds like Hardy Kruger he was in the original 'flight of the phoenix' great film, great actor.
Apparently he went to an Adolph Hitler school.
Danny beat me to it, Darren Nesbittahem
I also recognised the description fitting Derren Nesbitt (whom I also remember got in trouble for beating up his wife - typecast?) which is the correct spelling, ie. not Darren!
Then I also remembered the young actor in Hannibal, leading the elephant over the mountain, no curly hair but the character type, not to mention the poet Dylan Thomas!
He started out acting in the '50s and usually played villains, starring as underworld gang boss Bertie Hoyle in the '63 film 'The Informers' opposite Nigel Patrick and Margaret Whiting. He had a similar role in a 1972 Dick Emery comedy.
