Jeremy was born in the town of Market Harborough in the middle of England.
He is one of six children and even at the young age of five was on stage
in his school show enjoying acting and singing. After failing a school
exam at the age of eleven Jeremy seemed destined for the acting profession
and was soon attending Corona Academy Drama School, making his first
professional appearance at the age of twelve when he appeared in a commercial
for a breakfast cereal.
Following many appearances on children's television, Jeremy's big break
came at the age of 17 when he landed a major role in the musical film
Summer Holiday (1963) which starred the pop idol Cliff Richard. Shortly
after he went into a BBC soap opera called The Newcomers (1965) which
ran for three years and made him a household name in the UK. In 1969,
Jeremy was off to Madrid in Spain to play the leading role in a musical
film called Leandras, Las (1969). This was followed by two major films:
The Virgin and the Gypsy (1970) and Mary, Queen of Scots (1971).
During the 1970s
and ‘80s he made many other screen appearances,
including a supporting role in The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and in For
Your Eyes Only (1981) and Octopussy (1983) in which he portrayed the
character 'Smithers' (Q's assistant).
In 1978 he was starring in a hit television comedy series, Agony (1979)which
was co-written by an American called Len Richmond. It was during this
series that Jeremy was asked to play a small part in Star Wars: Episode
V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980). The part, of course, was 'Boba
Fett' - proving the old theatrical saying that "there is no such thing
as a small part"! Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983)
soon followed and Jeremy was invited to reprise the role of Boba.
Since the early 1980s Jeremy has played many roles on television and
on the stage in London's West End. Jeremy also appeared regularly in
the favourite TV series Robin of Sherwood (1984) in which he played the
part of Edward of Wickham.
