The topic related to the people who have not been mentioned in any Avengers books, special websites, etc. (as far as I know).

Let's start with the most interesting. Wink

Syd Wragg (credited as Sid Wragg in the films)

Karate teacher and adviser, actor



He taught Gareth Hunt how to fight Karate as Mike Gambit in TNA, as well as Joanna Lumley as Purdey (Wragg recalled that, being her first major TV role, Lumley was very shy at first).

It is possible that he appeared as an extra somewhere in the TNA. Wink

This was the role through which he became well known. Wink

Tony Klinger

Writer, filmmaker, production executive, director, and academic.



Worked as Third Director Assistant on The Avengers in second half 1960s. In different interviews he refers to the different points - in ones he says that he worked in the series when he was 16 years old - that is, 1966 (born 29 January 1950) - others he says: 17 years old. According to the fact that Mike Richardson's book does not mention him in documents for 1967, I think it should be 1966. Maybe the first color episodes? Confused

Thanks to Ray Warren...

https://www.facebook.com/ray.warren.52?__tn__=%2CdC-R-R&eid=ARClC5C_Y1j0uhKbQbSdz04v3iMJrHziyjnLLs1vp00wcP5w5a6eH617mknj8KdvuUB4N_fRauE28wWp&hc_ref=ARQtOAJgArvOsiq_P3DATSP40UKCG-AohRK2hAxxmw55FkrW1aJukuLb8l5YP5TdEP0&fref=nf

...for the yesterday information in the Avengerians group on Facebook:

Brian Osborne

Camera Grip.



Ray Warren:

Met Brian Osborne at the weekend, he was a Camera Grip and worked at Elstree Studios on many productions, including The Avengers.
Told me he was part of the crew that shot the opening titles with Pat and Diana during one weekend and that they used real champagne.
Also said on one episode, the director wanted a shot, they required a camera to be attached to a Bentley (guessing Steeds) and the owner gave them permission to drill two holes in the bonnet, to fix the camera to it! He's 93 and still remembers a lot, was great to talk to him.



Moreover, stuntman Paul Weston (double for Patrick Macnee) commented:
I remember Ozzie very well. Her was an important part of the Studio team and great to work with. God bless him.

Smile Excellent material.
