Biography by Hal Erickson

Stylish British comic actor Tony Britton made the transition from stage to screen in 1952. Most of his film appearances were confined to brief, albeit memorable, supporting roles. Where Britton truly thrived was in the world of television, beginning with his six-year (1968-1973) stint on the popular BBC sitcom Father Dear Father. Tony Britton's other series-TV work has included Robin's Nest (the precursor to America's Three's Company), And Mother Makes Five, Don't Wait Up, and Don't Tell Father.
