Richard Todd

Richard Todd (born June 11, 1919) is a British actor.

Born Richard Andrew Palethorpe-Todd in Dublin, the son of a British officer, who also played international rugby for Ireland . He grew up in Devon and attended Shrewsbury School. He began acting in regional theatres as a dark haired leading man in the 1930's, before co-founding the Dundee Repertory Theatre in 1939. He served with distinction as an officer and paratrooper in the 7th Battalion (LI)The Parachute Regiment during World War II in the 6th Airborne Division, and gained fame in the London stage version of The Hasty Heart (as Lachlan MacLachlan), which took him to Broadway then Hollywood. He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for the role in 1949.

Todd was never able to repeat his success in the United States, appearing in several films which did not do as well as his first role.

He did appear in "Stage Fright" (1950), for Alfred Hitchcock, "The Dam Busters" (1955) (as Wing Commander Guy Gibson, VC), "The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men" (1952), "The Sword and the Rose" (1953), "Rob Roy, the Highland Rogue" (1954), "A Man Called Peter" (1955) (as Peter Marshall), "The Virgin Queen" (1955) (as Sir Walter Raleigh), "D-Day, the Sixth of June" (1956) and The Longest Day (1962). An interesting note about this role - during the war, Todd met with Major John Howard on the Orne Bridge (later renamed as 'The Pegasus Bridge') in Normandy. In the movie, he played Major Howard, and the scene in which Howard met up with Todd appears in the film. In D-Day the Sixth of June, he portrayed the commanding officer of the unit in which Todd and Howard served, and the scene was filmed again.

He has continued an active acting career into his eighties. He was married to the actresses Catherine Grant-Bogle, who he met in Dundee Rep (1949-1970, two children) and Virginia Mailer (1970-1992, two children).
