Lewis Collins

Actor

Born - 27 May 1946, Bidston, Cheshire, UK
Died - 27 November 2013

Tall, dark, lean, lithe, good-looking actor (originally a singer) cast almost entirely in action-man roles. After a low-profile beginning in acting, he became a household name as Bodie in the long-running TV series The Professionals. Before that, he had made his film debut in Confessions of a Driving Instructor (1976). After fame, he had the lead in a number of soldierly thrillers: The Final Option (1982), Code Name: Wild Geese (1984), Kommando Leopard (1986) and billed over Lee Van Cleef, Donald Pleasence and Brett Halsey in The Commander (1988). But he never achieved the variety of roles he desired, and the TV movie A Ghost in Monte Carlo (1990) was his last feature-length work of any note. He died from cancer.
