Well, after watching "The Charmers" again I can state that Malcolm Russell was definitely an Aussie!

I agree with Franky, 64 is not long-lived!

On the other hand, I suspect Malcolm Russell didn't live until 112! Both are very common names so the chance of having two people with the same name confused is high.


I indicated that while I am working on the topic of "long-livers", in parallel, I am conducting research for the peformers that the information seems suspicious to me. Apparently I expressed myself badly in English. Wink

As for Malcolm Russell, it is mentioned in Nottingham Journal (26 July 1939) that he South Africa native.
Yes, I made a typo, I wanted to say 2002, not 2012. Otherwise, I have provided the information correct.

I suspect his full name is George Malcolm Russell. Married actress Wynne Sheradon in 1942.

This ausstage.edu.au datebase often assumes that some performers only have been in Australia. I have studied this many times.

Ah yes, I thought that maybe the details about Barbara Yu Ling are a by-product of your longevity research. She was great in The Prisoner and had time for fans, a lovely lady. It's extremely interesting finding out more about the actors especially when they are from places like Australia and South Africa which had a great input of personnel to ITV/ABC and BBC productions both in front of and behind the cameras. I believe trades union rules (at least for actors, and probably for production personnel) were less restrictive for the "former colonies" than for workers from the USA and other countries.

There's no question about Malcolm Russell's accent, it's definitely Australian. Maybe he was born in South Africa and emigrated to Australia as a toddler or something, there's no trace of a Afrikaans accent.
