George Pravda
Birth: 1918
Prague
Prague Capital City, Czech Republic
Death: Apr. 30, 1985

Actor. His career began with Prague's "Realistic Theatre" company, where he appeared under the name Jiri Pravda. He was fluent in six languages, which aided his escape from soviet rule on false papers after the end of World War II. He went first to France and then to Australia, where he helped establish the "Tana" theatre company. His work there was noticed by Dame Sybil Thorndike, who wrote him letters of introduction to Hugh "Binkie" Beaumont and Sir John Gielgud, making it possible for him to move to England in 1956. Once there he appeared on the West End, and in movies such as "Thunderball", "Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed" and "Firefox". He also had a successful television career, appearing in "The Avengers", "The Saint", "The Prisoner", "Doctor Who", "I, Claudius" and "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy". (bio by: js)
