Loose Cannon's Hall Of Fame:
Jeremy's first TV appearance was in Deadline Midnight in 1961. He is probably best known to Doctor Who fans as the caveman Kal in An Unearthly Child. He therefore has the distinction of being the first ever Doctor Who 'baddie' by hitting the Doctor on the head and kidnapping him in the second episode. He appeared in Doctor Who again two years later in the story Mission to the Unknown as Gordon Lowery, this time up against the Daleks.
Jeremy's other TV roles include The Avengers, Adam Adamant, The Three Musketeers (as Athos), The Saint, Department S, Doomwatch, The Sweeeney, Space 1999, The Professionals, Minder, Romeo & Juliet, The Tripods, Eastenders, Poirot, Taggart and Brookside.
One of the most striking things about Jeremy Young is his razor-sharp sense of humour. Some of this trait comes across in the Mission to the Unknown - Reunion. But many very funny comments could be heard emanating from Jeremy whilst watching the reconstruction of Mission to the Unknown. A delightfully funny and friendly man Jeremy does little acting now, preferring to direct and to teach drama.
Jeremy Young was interviewed in DWM issue 296.
