Martin Miller

Biography

Martin Miller, born Rudolph Muller (2 September 1899 – 26 August 1969) was a Czech character actor who played many small roles in British films and television series from the early 1940s until his death.[1] He was best known for playing eccentric doctors, scientists and professors, although he had a wide range of small obscure roles from photographers and waiters, to a pet store dealer, rabbis, a Dutch sailor and a Swiss tailor. He had some minor roles in notable films such as Squadron Leader X (1943), English Without Tears (1944), Mine Own Executioner (1947), Counterblast (1948), Man on the Run (1949), Encore (1951), You Know What Sailors Are (1954), The Gamma People (1956), Mark of the Phoenix (1958), 55 Days at Peking (1963), The V.I.P.s (1963) and The Pink Panther (1963). The characters he portrayed of most substance were probably as George II of England in Bonnie Prince Charlie (1948) and his recurring role as Kublai Khan in Doctor Who in the 1960s. In the 1960s he appeared in episodes of numerous cult spy ITC Entertainment productions, including Ghost Squad, Danger Man, The Saint, The Avengers, The Baron, The Prisoner, and Department S. Biography Miller was born Rudolph Muller in the Moravian city of Kroměříž, then known as Kremsier in Austria-Hungary, on 2 September 1899. He began a career as an actor working in Vienna in 1925 but fled Austria at the outbreak of World War II to escape the persecution of the Jews and reportedly arrived in London in 1940 to pursue a career in the British industry.
