Frank Mills

Actor.

Played Harrap in Avengers episode The Charmers (1964).



It became known that the year of birth of Frank on IMDb and many other resources is incorrect.

IMDb indicates the year as 1929, while coronationstreet.wikia.com goes in more detail and reveals that actor born 20th September 1929 in Wandsworth, London. Etc...

Actually:

Born: April 11, 1927 in Peckham, London, England, UK

So, exactly the information on website tv.com is correct: Wink

First news in 2019. Smile

Ina Skriver

Actress.

Played Olga in TNA episode House of Cards (1976).



It became known that the year of birth of Ina on IMDb and many other resources is incorrect.

IMDb, Wikipedia and some modern websites indicates the year as 1947, while some old sources go even to 1950.

Actually:

Born: March 16, 1945 in Sorø, Denmark


Info will soon posted on IMDb:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0804871/


P.S./ Always when I watched TNA episode House of Cards (since 1997) I thought that the actress was more than 30 years old.

Deep Roy

Actor.

Played Klokoe in TNA episode Target! (1976).



It is no longer a secret that the date of birth of the actor on IMDb and some other sources is very far from reality.

IMDb, Wikipedia and some other websites indicates the date as December 1, 1957. That is, he was 18 years old in The New Avengers.

Well, would you be surprised if actually he was born even earlier than in 1950? Wink It is a fact, ladies and gentlemen.

So, truth is:

Born: January 26, 1949 in Nairobi, Kenya


Info will soon posted on IMDb:

Jo Kendall

Actress

Played Nurse in TNA episode To Catch a Rat (1976).



It became known that the year of birth of Jo on IMDb and many other resources is very far from reality. Even more than a case with Deep Roy (see above).

IMDb and other websites indicates the year as 1953. While in the case of Deep, he is 8 years older than outdated information, Jo is ... born even earlier than in 1940.

Actually:

Born: February 17, 1938 in Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England, UK

Chris Bunn

Stand-in and actor.

At the time of this, it is known that Chris was at least once a stunt double for Joanna Lumley in The New Avengers. He told: “we were in the dressing room and one of the crew came in and asked if anyone could fit into a size 7 woman’s boot, and I’m a size 8 so I said I’ll try, two cans of talc later and I got them on. Then I was told to take them off again and put on red tights and a mini skirt. I was going to run through a field of machine gun fire as Joanna Lumley’s double.”



Born: November 24, 1947 in Islington, London, UK

Anthony Snell

Actor, played Hellfire Club Member in Avengers episode A Touch of Brimstone (1966)...



...and maybe Poppy in Avengers episode Who's Who???.



Umm, I just recently discovered that there actually were two Englishmen Anthony Snell who participated in the British movies and this created some confusion on many websites, including IMDb.

So, let's look at the facts to find out who is who in reality:

Anthony Noel Snell (not participated in The Avengers/TNA) was a British RAF pilot during the Second World War. He flew in the North African campaign in 1942 and was shot down during the Allied invasion of Sicily in 1943. Initially captured by the Germans he escaped from a firing squad but was recaptured. He again escaped German captivity whilst in Italy and became one of the very few men to be awarded the DSO exclusively for escaping from the enemy.

Details are here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Snell_%28RAF_officer%29

He was an actor in British movies and TV in the 1950s.



He played in movie The Cruel Sea, for example:

http://movie-dude.co.uk/1Actors%20Pages/Anthony%20Snell.htm

etc...

I edited his filmography on IMDb and now it’s correct:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0811013

Mistake on IMDb is his year of death. But I hope someone from the IMDb staff will soon fix it.

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

Anthony John Snell (participated in The Avengers, see this post above)

I did research and it looks like he started to participate regularly as extra in British movies and TV from the early 1960s.

Born: November 26, 1935 in Middlesex, England, UK

Died: January 2, 1997 in London, England, UK


Part of this information is already posted on IMDb:

Sally-Jane Spencer

Actress.

Played Mother in TNA episode To Catch a Rat (1976).



It became known that the year of birth of Sally on IMDb and many other resources is incorrect.

Actually:

Born: July 10, 1948 in Buckinghamshire, England, UK


Info will soon posted on IMDb:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0818095/

P.S./ According to Ancestry, she died in USA, but it requires confirmation.

Surprise, suddenly I discovered some information for early biography of:

Jacqueline Jones

Actress.

Played Henriette in Avengers episode Box of Tricks (1963).



It became known that Jacqueline Jones is stage name and that the year of birth of Jacqueline on all resources is incorrect.

Resources, including IMDb, indicates the year as 1939.

So let's take a look at the facts: Wink


Jacqueline was born in 1934, in London, England, as Jacqueline Bannister.

Began professional career as a ballet dancer at the age of 16, since 1950, using a stage name Lyn Shaw. In 1956, as member of troupe "Ballet Charley", she toured in Italy, where decided to stay and spent four years there. From 1958 to 1960 she used the stage name Lynn Shaw. Returned to England in 1960 and began using the stage name Jacqueline Jones.


Part of this info is already posted on Jacqueline Jones page of IMDb:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0428288

John Gayford

Actor, played 1st Police Constable in Avengers episode The Radioactive Man (1961).

As there are no screenshot (s) with John from Avengers episode "The Radioactive Man", we can not say with certainty that he played a part on the video record too, but in any case, he took part in rehearsals. Wink



As it turned out, John pretty well painted his life in various messages on Facebook's personal page.

https://www.facebook.com/john.gayford

Full name: John Gayford Harry.

Born: February, 1933 in Hertfordshire, England, UK


This information will soon posted on IMDb:
