Garard Green

Garard Green (31 July 1924 – 26 December 2004) was a British actor and commentator. Green was born in Madras, India in 1924 where his father was superintendent of the government press. When his father died in 1933 the family returned to the United Kingdom and Green finished his education at Watford Grammar School. He developed an interest in acting at Watford but when he left the school he returned to India and the Military Academy and was commissioned into the 2nd King Edward VII's Own Gurkha Rifles (The Sirmoor Rifles). At the end of the war he was demobilised and won a Sir Alexander Korda scholarship to Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA). On leaving RADA he worked in the theatre in London. In 1953 he married the actress Margaret Tansley. He developed mobility problems caused by severe arthritis which stopped his stage career and he concentrated on films and television, appearing in over 40 films including The Prince and the Showgirl and A Town Like Alice. As well as radio work where his talent at voices was in demand, Green recorded nearly 250 audio-books many for the Royal National Institute for the Blind.
