Wiki Biography: John Carson is a hugely prolific actor who appeared constantly on UK screens throughout the mid-50s until the mid-80s. He has appeared alongside many of the UK's stars and became hugely popular as a villain or hero. The secret of John's success has been his versatility and his wonderful silky voice. He appeared in 3 Hammer films which led to an ever-increased popularity amongst film fans. John moved to South Africa from England in the 80s and, sadly, his appearances became far more sporadic although he always kept working, even producing and filming his own short documentary, "African Spirit". He has since returned to England in 2007 and has been involved in a few films, such as The Deal (2008/I). He is still working. He recently attended a John Carson Celebration Day in London (July 2009). This was the first time he has talked publicly about his long career in television, film and stage. The day was a huge success and, aside from a showing of two of his films, John gave an interview on stage and then signed autographs. He is hugely popular to this day and this was proved so by a large attendance and the queues for his autograph and photos. John remains one of our finest and most familiar actors to this day.
