Sep 22, 1925
Birth Place:
London, England


British actor William Franklyn added films to his stage credits starting in the mid '50s. He gained worldwide prominence with Enemy From Space (1957), a filmization of the popular British science-fiction TV series Quatermass II. Many of his screen performances were in period costume, which he wore as if he'd just stepped out of an earlier century: The Legend of Young Dick Turpin (1964), The Satanic Rites of Dracula (1973) were two of the many. William Franklyn moved between films and TV with impunity throughout the '60s and '70s. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
