Veteran Actor Given CBE

Earl Cameron is a long-established name in British television, film and theatre, and has been performing in the public eye since as long ago as 1951 – and appeared in episodes 1 and 2 of 1966’s The Tenth Planet, the Doctor Who story that introduced the Cybermen…

With this in mind, and his recent success in 2005’s The Interpreter as the corrupt leader of an African nation (more than shades of President Mugabe), it’s easy to see why Cameron – at 91 years old – has been honoured by HM The Queen in the 2009 New Year’s Honours list.

"I was tickled pink when I found out. It was something I suppose I thought might happen one day, but I never gave it a lot of thought really.

"I have no idea who nominated me but I am very grateful. I should hear within the next few weeks when I will receive it officially."

It’s great to see that Cameron continues to work.  To date his career has taken in James Bond (Thunderball), Dangerman, The Prisoner, Lovejoy, Neverwhere, and many other series and one offs – not to mention the odd movie!
