Julian Orchard

Julian Dean C. Orchard (3 March 1930, in Wheatley, Oxfordshire, England [1] – 21 June 1979, in Westminster, London, England)[2] was an English comedy actor Biography

Orchard was educated at Shrewsbury School and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He appeared as the flamboyant Duke of Montague, a cousin of Prince Edward, in the Cinderella film, The Slipper and the Rose (1976). He had a regular slot on Spike Milligan's The World of Beachcomber, a TV version of the Beachcomber pieces by J. B. Morton, appearing as the poet Roland Milk. His customary role was that of a gangling and effete - and sometimes effeminate - dandy.

He appeared in several of the comedy Carry On films and the sex comedy Adventures of a Private Eye (1977).

He appeared on BBC television as the "Minister for the Arts" in the episode of The Goodies entitled "Culture for the Masses" and as one of the "mechanicals" in a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

The role of Mr Oliver Pettigrew in the TV series Whack O was played by Julian Orchard in 1971 (having been created by Arthur Howard in 1956-60).

For the 1971 Christmas season Orchard starred, with Terry Scott, as an Ugly Sister, in the London Palladium's production of Cinderella and the following year he again played the Dame, the nurse, in the London Palladium's pantomime, 'Babes in the Wood'.

In 1974 Julian Orchard became a member of the National Theatre Company at The Old Vic, appearing in Peter Hall's debut production, The Tempest. He and Arthur Lowe played the comedy duo of Stefano & Trincolo to John Gielgud's Prospero.

Jack Haig

 

Jack Haig (5 January 1913 – 4 July 1989) was a British actor who specialised in supporting roles, mainly in TV comedy.

Haig was the son of music hall actors Bertha Baker and Charles Coppin, whose act went under the name "Haig and Esco". He was seen in a long list of British TV favourites: Hugh and I, Dad's Army, Are You Being Served?, Terry and June and others. He was in Crossroads soap opera in the 1960s and a couple of cinema films. He achieved his greatest success as Monsieur LeClerc in BBC's 'Allo 'Allo!, a role he played until his death. His last appearance was in the final episode of series 5, where he impersonated a Spanish guitarist, alongside Kenneth Connor (Monsieur Alfonse), who had an Enigma code machine hidden in his accordion. He is fondly remembered by many 'Allo 'Allo fans for his signature line, "It is I, LeClerc!"

His earlier TV work included a regular spot as a comic on The One O'clock Show and Happy Go Lucky a children's TV show during the 1960s.[1] The One O'Clock Show was shown every weekday in the Tyne Tees area of ITV. He usually appeared in sketches as 'Wacky Jackie', generally playing the fool in a music hall comedy style.

In 1989, Haig became too ill to work and later died of cancer. His wife was revue actress Sybil Dunn, who had died the previous year, two days before their golden wedding anniversary. They had one daughter.
