Acteur et réalisateur né le 20 janvier 1922 (décédé à 91 ans)
Graham Stark is an English comedian, actor, writer and director.
Stark was born in Wallasey on the Wirral in Cheshire, England. He first came to prominence on BBC Radio, making his debut in Happy Go Lucky and going on to Ray's A Laugh, Educating Archie and substitute on The Goon Show. Stark was a regular supporting player on TV - notably with his good friend Peter Sellers in A Show Called Fred and Son of Fred, and with Benny Hill - before getting his own sketch series, The Graham Stark Show. All the editions were scripted by Johnny Speight and each one featured a different group of supporting actors, including Deryck Guyler, Arthur Mullard, Derek Nimmo, Patricia Hayes and Warren Mitchell. Stark worked and socialised quite a bit with Spike Milligan and Sellers, and is mentioned throughout biographies of them, such as Pauline Scudamore's biography of Milligan, and especially in Roger Lewis's comprehensive biography of Sellers.
He became a regular performer in the Pink Panther film series. His first role in the series was as Hercule Lajoy, Inspector Clouseau's stonefaced assistant, in A Shot in the Dark. Other than Herbert Lom and Burt Kwouk, he has appeared in more Pink Panther films than any other actor, playing a variety of characters, including reprising Lajoy in Trail of the Pink Panther and twice playing Dr Auguste Balls. He also played the role of Lord Fortnum's doctor, Captain Pontius Kak, in the original stage play of The Bed-Sitting Room, which opened at the Mermaid Theatre on 31 January 1963.
