Biography for Gareth Hunt

Gareth Hunt (born 7 February 1943 in London) is an English actor, known for his roles as Frederick in Upstairs, Downstairs and Mike Gambit in The New Avengers which also starred a youthful Joanna Lumley as Purdee. They were complimented by the only member of the original series The Avengers to reprise his role, Patrick Macnee as John Steed.

The curly-haired Hunt subsequently made a series of television ads for Nescafé, with a trademark move; to shake his clenched hand then open it and smell it, to reveal coffee beans. Naturally, this somewhat dubious hand motion and his rhyming name (See Cockney rhyming slang) earned his place in the hearts of all 1970s schoolchildren, viz. "Don't be such a Gareth Hunt".

He also had a role in the 1974 Doctor Who story Planet of the Spiders.
