Christopher Cazenove was born in Winchester on December 17th 1945. He was educated at Eton and Oxford and began his movie career with a small part in Julius Ceasar in 1970. He seems to have been on our TV screens ever since. He is best known for roles in The Duchess of Duke Street, Dynasty and Judge John Deed. He has also acted on Broadway in Goodbye Fidel and starred in many American films such as Eye of the Needle, Mata Hari and Three Man and a Little Lady.
He has usually been based in south London and owned a BMW motorcycle, but when he got the part in Dynasty and moved the States he sold it Gus Kuhn and left some of his motorcycle gear there too.
In 2002 he foiled a bank robbery at NatWest in Clapham High Street when he hit a robber over the head with a wooden chopping board. He had just bought the chopping board in Sainsbury's when he saw the thief snatch the cash box and hit a Securicor guard over the head with it. He knocked one of the robbers to the ground, and the cash box dropped. Then the robbers fled.
