Many thanks, Mariocki, for kind words! Wink At such rates, we will soon know the basic data of almost all Avengers/TNA cast. Wink Well... Rolling Eyes I hope! Smile Smile Smile

New arrival! Suddenly I managed to find out the data for Len Belmont (I looked for it many times before and almost lost hope).



Len, famous London Ventriloquist, appeared in role Himself in episode "Look - (Stop Me If You've Heard This One) But There Were These Two Fellers...".

(Oh, the title of the episode is longer than the part of sentence itself before). Very Happy

Okay, below without jokes.

Len Belmont

Full real name: Leonard Alfred Brown

Aha, now this is clear why he came up with a stage name - too common real surname.

Born: August, 1930 in England, UK

Information is already posted in IMDb:

Exciting news!!! Information for:

Rosemary Donnelly

Actress, played Miranda in episode "They Keep Killing Steed" (1968).



Born in 1944 or 1945, according to different newspapers or photo bases?

Smile In parallel with the celebration of the anniversary of Diana Rigg - the actress turned 80 years old today - I found an information for some important people involved in the production of TNA in Canada.

1. Jim Hanley

Film producer and director.

Despite he only credited as producer for TNA episodes "Forward Base" and "Emily", he worked for all four Canadian episodes. For first time he mentioned as Canadian TNA producer of the planned production in Toronto already in the spring of 1977.
(As a fact, for example, there are no credits for Canadian producers in the episode The Gladiators. Who worked for? Maybe Hugh Harlow and Jim Hanley? Confused)

Jim Hanley also arranged for the sales of TNA to the CBS network (USA).

On pic below, Jim Hanley as a sort of Canadian Brian Clemens. Very Happy



Jim was a close friend of Don Thompson (who directed two episodes of The New Avengers) along with whom he worked on many projects earlier and later. They were teachers at school in 1960s and edited the different films for students. Jim and Don on pic below:



So, thanks to Jim Hanley, his two friends, director Don Thompson and cinematographer Dennis Miller, came to The New Avengers. Very Happy Moreover, Jim's wife, Carol Hanley, also worked on the series, I think as a company secretary.

Other pic with Jim Hanley from 1970s.



Born: January 31, 1936 in Port Arthur, Ontario, Canada

Was married to Carol Hanley (since 1959 until 1981), with which after TNA he produced various documentary TV series.

Information is already posted on IMDb:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0360082/



2. Carol Hanley

Different activity, mainly known as a film producer.

Carol worked on the series in production period of all Canadian episodes. Wife of producer Jim Hanley on time.

Her name is present on many TNA documents, for examples:

http://avengersanew.com/About%20the%20Show/CTV%20And%20Nielsen%20Ferns%20Bring%20TNA%20to%20Canada.pdf

http://avengersanew.com/About%20the%20Show/TNA%20in%20Canada%20Episode%20Releases.pdf



Birth Name: Virginia Caroline Whiteley

Born: September 3, 1938 in Fort William, Ontario, Canada

Married:
Jim Hanley (1959 - 1981) ( divorced) (3 children)
Harry Taylor (200? - 9 December 2016) (his death)

Sadly, Carol died on May 26, 2018 in Cobourg, Ontario, Canada Sad

Sad Oh, Carol is another person connected with the series who was gone this year and about there was no word in the media. The same thing was about Robert Norris.

http://avengersfanforum.s2.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=3617

Information about Carol will soon posted on IMDb:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm8998964/


3. Don Buchsbaum

Production manager, worked on Canadian TNA episodes "Complex" and "The Gladiators".

Birth Name: Donald Harold Buchsbaum

Born: February 11, 1934 in New York City, New York, USA

Died: April 12, 2000 in Santa Monica, California, USA

Part of information is already posted on IMDb:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0118276/

Benny Nightingale

Actor, comedian and singer.

Played Grechio in episode "The Frighteners" (1961)



If calculate his age according to the newspapers, you can come to the conclusion that he was born in 1930 or 1931 (exactly these data - plus and minus two years - I took as a basis for search some years ago and it led me to a dead end). Strangely, I thought, he was a pretty known comedian in the 1960s. There mentioned that he was born in British Guinea, but this did not lead me to anything too. Confused I put my detective investigation on the shelf and only today decided to return to. I decided to work in the other direction and suddenly... found the information about his first wife. This led me to other threads.

Dear Avengers fans, who would have thought that Benny had very well reduced his age for media. Very Happy

So...

Birth Name: Hilbert Randolph Nightingale

Born: December 11, 1919 in British Guinea

He reduced his age by 11 years!!!

Was married to:

Iris Constance Hosier (1952 - ?) (divorced) (3 children)
Ann Christine Barker (1971 - ?) (divorced) (2 children)

Died: November 1995 in London, England, UK

Part of presented information is already posted on IMDb:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0631454/

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

P.S./ I found out that TNA producer Jim Hanley, since winter 1977, was a vice-president of the company Nielsen-Ferns Entertainment, which co-produced the series. TNA producer Ross McLean was hired later, spring or summer 1977 See the post above.

Gillian McCutcheon

Actress.

Played the role Ivy in Avengers episode "A Change of Bait" (1961)

This is indicated in many sources, including IMDb, that Gillian was born in 1948. One even specifies what it is 25 October 1948. That is, based on it, when she played in The Avengers she was about 13 years old.

13 years old? Gillian in The Avengers in the photo below.



This led me to a search and the results were not long in coming.

Full name: Gillian Patricia Mccutcheon

Born: April 1939

Yes, as fact, turns she was 22 when she was in The Avengers.

Information will soon posted on IMDb:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0567347/

Carole Boyer

Actress.

Played the role Christine in Avengers episode "Please Don't Feed the Animals" (1961).

As there are no screenshots with Carole from Avengers episode "Please Don't Feed the Animals", we can not say with certainty that she played a part on the video record too, but in any case, she took part in rehearsals. Wink



Real name: Carole Bowyer

This is the reason why it was difficult to find her early photos. Wink

Born: 1937 in London, England, UK

She began an acting career under her real name, as Carole Bowyer, since 1955 - 1958, after, as Carole Boyer.

Surprise, dear Avengers fans, Carole Boyer is the daughter of famous dancers Ronnie Boyer and Jeanne Ravel!

She was married on Balazs Laszlo Gyorffy, famous Hungarian-American-British theoretical physicist.

Have the daughter: Gita Gyorffy.

It's interesting about Annette Lynton, tnanks for information, Ian. It's nice to know that actress was involved in the event Treasure Hunt - expansion of the framework beyond one TNA episode. Wink

Oops, Ha-ha! Very Happy
Thanks, Piers. Wink
It is an interesting coincidence, when I read the words "Treasure Hunt" here, begin to think only in one direction. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Apologies my fault!

For me, the phrase "Treasure Hunt" sends my thoughts in a different direction and I didn't stop to consider the potential confusion for those not so familiar with Anneka Rice in a jumpsuit!

Finally got to learn the information about the actress, who used the stage name Terry Eliot. Frankly, I did not think that I would ever find out about, since there were no any clues for many many years.

Terry Eliot played Amanda in Avengers episode False Witness (1968).



Real full name: Teresa Anne Eliot

Born: September, 1941 in Kent, England, UK.

Lives in London, UK and France. Retired writer. Wink

The new forum banner sets up a decisive mood, I'm back to Avengerland after creative meeting and some rest on the beach. Smile

At first I planned to do some updates on Steedumbrella, but instead I went to the IMDb to check my list with the performers to see what was posted there in the last days. Checking, I gradually went back to the detective work on finding the data on the performers who appeared in The Avengers/TNA.

Today was studying for:

Janine Gray

Actress, played Ola Monsey-Chamberlain in Avengers episode Don't Look Behind You (1963).



Born: January, 1942 in Bombay, Bombay Presidency, British India (new info is month). Thus, the year of birth is confirmed - indeed 1942.

Started the career as Janine Glass.

Information will soon posted on IMDb:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0336704/
