I still think about him every day - mainly due to this site! He's not a minor part of the Avengers, and The Avengers is one of the great showcases of acting talent of the 20th century, so it's always nice to see fans talking about him, and to catch his appearances when he pops up in Upstairs Downstairs and more obscure stuff, on my telly (and DVD player). What a gent.


very well stated..Franky...shame that he died before his time..still hard to believe he's gone..but he'lllive forever..inna sense..thru his appearances...

Just watched a 1972 film comedy I'd recorded a few days ago from the Talking pictures channel. Towards the end of the film the door was opened to a policeman played by none other than Gareth Hunt. He only had a few lines, but not a bad film, worth watching. It will be on again, as films tend to get repeated every so often on this channel.

Thanks Darren. He was really quite an actor. I saw part of a movie he played as a mime I believe? Are you familiar with this one? I hardly recognized him.

Obvious question: what was the film, Rich? Smile

To preempt Rich's reply, I'd take a punt on it being For The Love of Ada.

There is often good stuff on Talking Pictures, I wish I could receive the channel.

I should have said, but yes it was For the love of Ada. It was based on a sitcom that I've never seen. Not a classic, but not bad. Gareth only has the one short scene. They do repeat the films every so often on this channel, so it's bound to be on again soon. This channel (Talking pictures) have also shown at least 3 of Honor's 1950's films.

Gareth's sitcom from 1981 'That Beryl Marston' also starring Julia McKenzie, is being repeated on Talking pictures next Monday at 8.25am. There was only one series of 6 episodes made. It's quite a good, gentle comedy, but don't expect any belly laughs here.

Gareth Hunt in “Good Grief Moncrieff!”, broadcast on July 27th 1996 on RTÉ One. Hunt talks about the similarities and differences between himself and the character Mike Gambit, his three marriages, his former status as a sex symbol, his friendship with former costars Joanna Lumley and Patrick Macnee, and the fact/gossip that Mel Gibson bought the film rights to interpret John Steed...

Great news for Gareth Hunt fans. Smile

Today I added two Nescafe coffee commercials with Gareth on Steedumbrella:

http://steedumbrella.ru/gareth_hunt_other_works.html

Steedumbrella page already presents eleven different versions. Frankly it is no surprisingly, as Gareth began acting in Nescafe commercials since 1978 and participated until the late 1980s. Wink

You never know who might turn up while watching old sitcoms! Today I was watching an old 1974 episode of Bless this house starring Sid James. The delivery man turned out to be Gareth Hunt, roughly 18 months before he played Gambit! Bless this house is on Forces TV, so will probably be on again soon.
