It seems that lanky, long-chinned actor John Owens has appeared in a lot of my favourite TV programmes over the years, but has always somehow flown just under my recognition radar. Looking at his resumé on the ever-useful imdb website, I notice that he has had a lot of no-name roles that suggest the fringes of extra-dom; 'waiter', 'salesman', 'man in cupboard', 'jumble donor' and quite often 'vicar'. This does him little justice.
|'Oh Crikey!' It's Rik's favourite TV show in 'The Young Ones'|
|One of several vicar roles, this one in the gentle police sitcom 'Rosie'|
|Trying to sell insurance to Hyacinth in 'Keeping Up Appearances'|
|As a gangland gunman in 'Clegg' aka 'The Bullet Machine' (1970)|
