Actor
    (June 11, 1919-December 3, 2009)
    Born in Dublin, Ireland
    Birth name was Richard Andrew Palethorpe-Todd
    Appeared in the films 'The Hasty Heart' (1949), 'Stage Fright' (1950), 'The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men' (1952), 'Rob Roy, the Highland Rogue' (1954), 'The Dam Busters' (1955), 'A Man Called Peter' (1955), 'The Virgin Queen' (1955), 'D-Day the Sixth of June' (1956), 'The Yangtse Incident' (1957), 'Saint Joan' (1957), 'Never Let Go' (1960), 'The Longest Day' (1962), 'Operation Crossbow' (1965), 'The Love-Ins' (1967) and 'The Big Sleep' (1978)
    His decision to become an actor led to such a rift with his mother that he spent no time in mourning after she committed suicide when he was 19.
    He was married and divorced twice.
    He was one of Ian Fleming's preferred choices for James Bond, but he turned it down due to a scheduling conflict.
    He won a Golden Globe for most promising male newcomer (1950).
    He was a paratrooper during the D-Day landings, and helped repel German counterattacks against the Pegasus bridge.
    When he joined the army, he kept his profession a secret to avoid being assigned to an entertainment unit.
    He said of his wartime experience, 'You don't consciously set out to do something gallant. You just do it because that is what you are there for.'
