Born this day in 1928
Vargas in Thunderball
Tall, slender and gaunt looking, Philip Locke attended RADA, like many of the Bond alums. He cultivated his acting within the theatre: Oldham Repertory Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre, Royal Court Theatre, and Broadway. He made his first appearance on a television series, Jan at the Blue Fox, in 1952. He appeared in three The Avengers episodes, two episodes in The Saint, as well as four episodes of Doctor Who in 1982 as Bigon and Control. Locke is one of those few actors that worked in both the Eon Productions Bond films and the Doctor Who franchise.
