General LC Banner General LC Banner Unofficial LC website title

Welcome to fans old and new

This site is a tribute to Lewis Collins, the British actor, bassist, charity fund-raiser, director, drama teacher, drummer, film-maker, flautist, guitarist, hairdresser, judo-ka, marksman, motorcyclist, paratrooper, pianist, pilot, poet, scriptwriter, shodan jujitsu-ka, singer, skydiver, songwriter, voice artist...and a few other things.

Lewis started off in 1959 as a drummer, at the age of thirteen. He has had several career changes since then, however most of his work has been overshadowed by his most famous acting rôle. But he has done so much more than most people realise, and this site aims to celebrate all his other work, before, during and after the show that made him a household name.

It is a work-in-progress - we started off as a skeleton with just the bare bones, but we're fleshing it out with regular updates until it is a big, fat, comprehensive guide to the fifty-year career of one of Britain's most respected and beloved actors.
