4. Peter Wyngarde 1927-2018

Peter Wyngarde‘s birthdate, and place of birth were disputed.
His Father was part of the British Diplomatic Core.

He was an actor who played up the camp side of maleness in the 1970s to such a degree that most others would have failed. He carried am ambiguity of maleness with such flair that he was believable.

By 1971 it was reported that “more babies [had been] christened Jason during the last 12 months than ever before”.

His most famous role was the sleuth Jason King. The charcater’s most famous quote was: “A bit too early for coffee … I think I’ll have Scotch.” Apparently he claimed to be bisexual attracting men and women alike.
He was the inspiration for Austin Powers Man of Mystery.

What a life.
