Which of the Number 2’s (hehe, I love the way that sounds 🙂 Have gone onto star in their own shows or their own films?
I know Leo McKern went on to star in the series Rumpole of the Bailey….. anyone know of what happened top any of the others?25th May 2003 at 7:44 pm #66336streudelParticipant
I am cruising the internet now for the answer to that, haven’t run into anything yet. But by hook or by crook…
Leo McKern is the only one I know anything about. I understand he died not too long ago. A sad loss of a fine actor, to be sure. He was THE nomber 2 in my mind.25th May 2003 at 7:56 pm #66337AnonymousInactive
I’m multi-tasking at the moment (getting stuff packed for a big move — hopefully not to The Village), but while many of them have appeared in well known films and TV; none were in such a memorable starring role as Leo McKern (my favourite No.2) in Rumpole. And I remember reading before that four of the No. 2s appeared in Bond movies. I’m a Bond buff and remember George Baker from Arrival in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.30th May 2003 at 12:59 pm #66396petParticipant
