Shane Rimmer

Shane Rimmer: 

† May 28 1929 – Mar 29 2019

Yes, he's Canadian, but his career has been almost exclusively UK-based since 1958, and as he's the unmistakable voice of 'Thunderbirds' Scott Tracy, he now belongs to us. As well as nearly every Gerry Anderson production from the mid-'60s to 'Dick Spanner', he has been the go-to-guy for American character roles in films including 'The Spy Who Loved Me' (1977), 'Out Of Africa' (1985), 'Whoops Apocalypse' (1988), 'Rollerball' (1975), 'Dr Strangelove' (1964) and 'Gandhi' (1982). Disconcerting sometimes in other parts when you expect him to say "F.A.B, Virgil" at any moment.

Rimmer provided the voice of Scott Tracy in 'Thunderbirds' 
In Rollerball (1975)
