Born 13 January 1931 in Ipswich, England, Ian Hendry's career began rather auspiciously--playing the fall guy for a circus clown. After attending London's Central School of Speech and Drama, things started progressing nicely when he starred as Dr. Geoffrey Brent in Police Surgeon. This led directly to The Avengers, but after only one season he left to pursue film. This proved a fruitful move as he found plenty of work (perhaps not surprisingly often as doctors and police officers), although he made occasional returns to the small screen, even guest starring in an episode of The New Avengers. His career was cut short on 24 December 1984, as he died from a internal haemorrhage aged 53.

  • He was actually the primary focus and was top-billed over partner Patrick Macnee when the first season of the "The Avengers" hit the airwaves. The more successful pairings of Macnee with Honor Blackman and Diana Rigg came later.
  • He was the father of three daughters Corrie, Emma and Sally.
  • Was booked to play a British reporter in Lace 2 but died before filming began.
  • Won the 1966 'Golden Star' award for his performances in the TV series 'The Informer'.
