Richard O'Sullivan

Richard O'Sullivan: 

The fun-loving, trendy face of the 1970s sitcom, well-known from 'Man About The House', 'Robin's Nest', and 'Doctor At Large', he was also a child actor in 'Cleopatra' opposite Elizabeth Taylor, and appeared in 'Carry On Teacher' (1959) and 'The Young Ones' (1961). 

The 1961 drama 'Spare The Rod' which features
Max Bygraves as a new teacher at a tough school   

He's a bit of a household name compared to some actors I've been saluting, but he has fallen on hard times following a serious stroke and now lives in showbiz sheltered housing in south west London. If you're old enough, he's probably a part of your life, and I wish him well.

In 'Dandy in Aspic' (1967)

A bit bedraggled, but sitting in a Bentley with a nude  Gabrielle Drake
in the Val Guest sex comedy 'The Au Pair Girls' (1972). Can't be bad.

In the '80s sitcom 'Me and My Girl'

  1. I think he lives at Brinsworth House these days. Real pity how his health has become over the past 10 years or so.

  2. It's a shame he's not remembered and his shows aren't aired on the nostalgia channels but I suppose theyre dated. He was one of the biggest stars of the 70s and 80s.
