Bernard Kay

  1. Eric Porter, The Forsyte Saga, TV, 1967.       If Porter had not been available, Kay was next on the list for the cold-hearted Soames Forsyte – in the BBC’s then biggest global series triumph.   Stupidly not shot in colour to help shave the buget. Directors knew Kay’s worth so well that he claimed he worked managed years in TV without ever needing to audition.
