The Unmutual Website is sad to confirm that Earl Cameron, one of the first successful black actors in British cinema, who appeared in both 'The Prisoner' and 'Danger Man', has passed away at the incredible age of 102.
Coming to recognition in the iconic and incredibly influential film 'Pool of London', Earl would enjoy a long and successful career in the industry, with roles in the James Bond movie 'Thunderball', the Dr Who serial 'The Tenth Planet', and the BBC fantasy series 'Neverwhere' particularly fondly remembered.
He appeared in no less than 5 episodes of 'Danger Man', before being asked to play the part of the Haitian Supervisor in 'The Schizoid Man' Working right up until, and throughout, his ninth decade, in the 2000s he appeared in films such as 'The Interpreter' with Nicole Kidman, and 'The Queen' with Helen Mirren.
The epitome of the word gentleman, Earl was a true trailblazer and will be missed and respected by all who knew him and all who were touched by his work.
