Gary Raymond

Gary Raymond was born on April 19, 20 in  Brixton, London, England, United Kingdom, is Actor. Born in Brixton, England in 1935, robust and good-looking Gary Raymond came from an acting family. Born Gary Barrymore Raymond, the youngest of three sons (one brother is a twin), his parents were music hall entertainers. Gary won a scholarship at the age of 11 to Gateway School in Leicaster, then graduated five years later and took on assorted odd jobs as a furrier and clerk while studying drama through the auspices of the London County Council. He was accepted by the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and trained there until he joined the Royal Shakespeare Company in the mid-50s. Amid the wealth of his Shakespearean repertoire include the roles of "Horatio", "Claudius", "Macbeth", "Oberon", "Benedick", "Orlando" and "Antonio".The darkly handsome youth bravado on film often bordered on arrogance, slightly resembled that of John Gavin and was a natural for movies. He earned quite a few formidable parts in films for his young age, most notably that of "Prince Charles Stuart" in The Moonraker (1958), "Cliff Lewis" in Look Back in Anger (1959), which was originally played by Alan Bates on stage, the title role in the Irish classic Playboy of the Western World (1963), "Prince Acastus" in Jason and the Argonauts (1963) and "St. Peter" in The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965). These important, well-acted credits soon caught the notice of Hollywood and Gary won a co-starring role opposite the equally ruggedly handsome Christopher George on the TV war series The Rat Patrol (1966) as "British Sergeant Jack Moffitt". The show, which seemed like a surefire winner, ran a disappointing two seasons.Primarily a stage player these days, Gary made an impressive dent on the London musical scene over the years, originating the role of "Georg" in "She Loves Me" (1964), as well as appearing in "Irma La Douce" (1958), "Treasure Island" (1973), "The Sound of Music" (1985), "Sunday in the Park with George" (1990), "A Little Night Music" (1995), "JFK: A Musical Drama" (1997), "Finian's Rainbow" (1999) and, more recently, "Grand Hotel" (2004). He has been less visible on film and TV since the late 60s. Wife Delena Kidd is also a respected actress who specializes in Shakespeare and Shaw. The couple have performed together many times on stage, not to mention the popular mini-movies Scarlett (1994) and Victoria & Albert (2001). Married since 1961, they have three children -- one daughter, Emily Raymond, is also an actress.
