He trained at LAMDA and made his first stage appearance at the Savoy Theatre in 1934. His stage credits included the title role in The Guinea Pig at the Criterion Theatre, a long run in Witness for the Prosecution at the Winter Garden Theatre, and two years playing Trotter in The Mousetrap at the Ambassadors Theatre in London.[citation needed]

His first film role was at the age of fifteen in the film Turn of the Tide.[2] He first came to wider attention for his appearance as a schoolboy in the Will Hay comedy, The Ghost of St. Michael's.[3] In 1964 he played the role of Count Luzau-Rischenheim in the British television series Rupert of Hentzau.[4]

He died of a heart attack, aged 43, while on holiday with his wife and family in Brittany.
