  • Andrew Ray (31 May 1939 – 20 August 2003) was an English actor, who was best known as a child star.He was born Andrew Olden (Ray was his father's stage name) in North London, the son of the famous radio comic Ted Ray and his wife, showgirl Dorothy Sibil. Ray's life was transformed at the age of 10 when he was cast in the title part of The Mudlark, a 20th Century Fox film starring Alec Guinness and Irene Dunne. He played a street urchin who ends up meeting Queen Victoria. The film was chosen as the Royal Command Performance in 1950 and catapulted Ray to child stardom.He featured in numerous films during the next few years, including The Yellow Balloon (with Kenneth More, 1953), Escapade (with John Mills, 1955), Woman in a Dressing Gown (with Sylvia Syms, 1957), Serious Charge (with Anthony Quayle and Cliff Richard, 1959), Twice Round the Daffodils (1962, with Juliet Mills and Kenneth Williams) and The System (with Oliver Reed and David Hemmings, 1964).Noteworthy theatre roles included Flowering Cherry (with Sir Ralph Richardson and Celia Johnson), and Taste of Honey on Broadway (with Angela Lansbury and Joan Plowright).At the age of 19, he married the Rhodesian actress Susan Burnet and they later had two children.Despite a rocky period in his twenties, Ray subsequently appeared in numerous film, theatre and television roles over the years, including as nuclear scientist Klaus Fuchs for Anglia Television and as King George VI in Crown Matrimonial on stage and television. So successful was his depiction on stage of the stammering George VI that he was cast in the same role (though then Prince Albert, Duke of York) in the television series Edward & Mrs. Simpson (1978).He starred in an episode of the television series Tales of the Unexpected titled 'The Wrong 'Un', plus Upstairs, Downstairs, Inspector Morse, and Peak Practice. He portrayed Herbert Pocket in the ITC remake of Charles Dickens's Great Expectations (1974).In later years, Ray was a committed member of Equity and served as a Councillor of the actors' union.Andrew Ray died, at the age of 64, in 2003 from a heart attack. His brother, Robin Ray, was a well-known television and radio personality, who died in 1998, also at the age of 64.
