Kovacs in Never Say Never Again

Milos Kirek was 46 when passed away in 1993. He had 40 acting credits to his name, starting in 1971 as Jan in the television series A Family at War, a World War II period show out of the UK. Most of his work was on the small screen, but occasionally he did break out to the silver screen. When he did, he worked with Sidney Poitier in A Warm December (1973), with Sam Neill in The Final Conflict (1981) and with Sean Connery in Never Say Never Again (1983). According to IMDB, his last role was in a television movie called Under Cover (1991) in which he played Boris.

Unfortunately, there was little else mentioned for Kirek.

And, now for the weekly round up of news about James Bond and spy stuff.
