Occupation actor

John Carson (born 28 February 1927) is a British actor noted for his appearances in film and television.

Making his film debut in 1947, he carved out a career appearing in low budget British movies such as Seven Keys (1961); Smokescreen (1964); and Master Spy (1964). His saturnine looks and sinister voice (not unlike James Mason) led to him starring in a number of horror films including The Night Caller (1965); Plague of the Zombies (1965); The Man Who Haunted Himself (1970); Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970); and Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter (1972).

Beside his appearances in horror films he is also known for his many villainous turns in adventure series of the sixties, such as The Avengers; The Saint; Adam Adamant Lives!; The Baron; Man in a Suitcase; The Champions; and Department S.

His long and varied list of television credits include The Adventures of Robin Hood; Emergency - Ward 10; Ivanhoe; William Tell; Armchair Theatre; Maigret; Out of the Unknown; Emma (as Mr. Knightley); Dixon of Dock Green; Crown Court; The New Avengers; Secret Army; The Professionals; Tales of the Unexpected; Hammer House of Horror; Doctor Who; and Poirot.
