Burt Kwouk is perhaps one of Britain’s busiest character actors. Internally famous as Inspector Clouseau’s manservant, Cato, Burt has starred in over sixty films, and has guest starred in tv series as diverse as Hancock’s Half Hour, Danger Man, The Avengers, The Saint, The Champions, Callan, The Tomorrow People, Return Of The Saint, Robin’s Nest, Dr Who, Hart To Hart, Lovejoy, The House Of Elliot, Harry Hill and The Bill.

His many films include Inn Of The Sixth Happiness (1958), Expresso Bongo (1960), A Shot In The Dark (1964) and, in the same year, he played Mr Ling in the third of the James Bond films, Goldfinger. Several films later, including Our Man In Marrakesh, The Brides Of Fu Manchu, The Vengence Of Fu Manchu and Casino Royale, Burt made his second ‘official’ Bond film appearance in You Only Live Twice (1967) as SPECTRE Number 3.

Five more Pink Panther films followed, as did the popular tv series Tenko. In recent years, Burt has starred in Air America (with Mel Gibson), Bullet To Beijing (with Michael Caine), Arabian Nights, Peggy Su!, Kiss Of The Dragon, and has supplied the voice of Banzai. He is now a regular in long-running BBC series Last Of The Summer Wine.

Whilst perhaps receiving most fan mail for Cato, Burt receives much for his two Bond appearances and looks back with pride and happy memories on his association with 007.
