Clive Moss

Actor

This was mentioned in Spotlight (several editions, the earliest I found since 1967), that Clive participated in The Avengers.

Clive participated in many TV and movies, according to Aveleyman he looks like...



...based on episode "Alf's Broken Leg" of TV series "Til Death Do Us Part" (1972).

Hmm, he is very similar to the boy from Avengers episode "A Surfeit of H2O".



I went to the IMDb and found a list of his credited works:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0608935/

Earliest credited work - as Fagin's Boy in movie Oliver! (1968).

Yes, small boy from Avengers episode played there, exactly as one of Fagin's Boys:




According to Spotlight, Clive Moss also participated in following works:

TV series

Court Martial

Movies

1. Up Jumped a Swagman

2. The Nanny

3. One Million Years B.C.

4. Operation Third Form

5. The Spy with a Cold Nose

6. Fahrenheit 451

7. The Christmas Trees

8. Quiller Memorandum

9. Charlie Bubbles

10. Half a Sixpence

Hmm, this time I could not find his in the mentioned works by Aveleyman and Moviedude. Confused

It seems to be necessary to personally watch some of these films, since I'm sure that his identification in the episode "Alf's Broken Leg" of TV series "Til Death Do Us Part" is true.

Johnny Briggs

Actor

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0109050/

This was mentioned in The Liverpool Echo (1977), that Johnny participated in The Avengers.

In the study, I found that his name was mentioned with the Avengers on the site Corrie.net, too

http://www.corrie.net/profiles/actors/briggs_johnny.html

Yes, well says the information on his participation in the series was published in several sources in general.

Frankly, when I studied movie-dude.co.uk and passed his face, I always had the feeling that somewhere I saw him in the Avengers. Confused

Johnny in A Stitch in Time (1963)



However, I just did a thorough research with the help of Piers' site, I could not identify.

Piers, there also has another interesting topic for you, here: Wink

http://avengersfanforum.s2.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=3595

Another one is Irish-born Australian Patrick McCarville, war correspondent, writer, ex-actor, journalist and many other.

This was mentioned in several newspapers that Patrick participated as actor in The Avengers.

Resume about Patrick:

http://www.celebrityspeakers.com.au/patrick-mccarville/

Interesting article about Patrick:

https://www.thefreelibrary.com/WHISKEY+WIZARD+OF+OZ%3B+Irishman+Pat+brings+a+taste+of+the+old+country...-a060433565

IMDb lists his many Australian works and almost nothing from the UK. Sad

Turns, he played in TV series Emergency Ward 10 (briefly as Dr McNamara), Z Cars (he wrote for this TV series some scripts too), Softly Softly and many others.

Born: 1936 (not 1938 according to IMDb) in Dublin, Ireland



Worked in Irish Whiskey Information Bureau from 1996 to 2006.



Moved to Australia in 1967.

Just found out what turns, according to newspaper The Observer from January 23, 1966, well-known actor Howard Pays played in The Avengers. Surprised

There it is also mentioned that he was in "The Saint" that on moment is not indicated on IMDb and other TV and movie sites, too. Although of course his role could be uncredited or cut or something else.

According to the newspaper Sсotsman, actress Sheila Gish played in The Avengers.

These seem less likely:

Hmm, I think none of the actress in these photos looks like Sheila, Piers. Sad

There is good news, Piers, I found a photo of the young Carole Boyer, who played the role Christine in Avengers episode "Please Don't Feed the Animals" (1961). Wink

Details here: Wink

I have been told that the small boy is Steven Morley, also credited in Oliver! but I can find no independent corroboration of that.

No, Piers, alas - Steve Morley is not our boy. Sad

There is posted online-interview with him and an attached photo:

http://doctorwhomark.blogspot.com/2013/11/our-interview-with-steve-morley.html



A face identical to the actor who is listed on the Moviedude as Steve Morley:



In his early career he was known as Steven Morley, and if he was actually born in 1953, then he should have been about 12 years in the Avengers. and our boy looks like a preschooler.

Wow, Many Thanks for your find, Piers! Razz The old mystery is now revealed.

If not this, I would hardly have returned to the thought of continuing the trace for Steven Morley. Wink

Now I'm bit re-reading the book The Ultimate Avengers (Dave Rogers) and just found a forgotten info about that the mother of the director Lewis Gilbert participated as an extra in The Avengers (it is possible that Lewis said about, considering that his mother died in 1972).

So...

Ada Pruzansky (aka Ada Griver and Ada Gilbert)

Actress and dancer

I can not find her photo except the one on Ancestry:
