Jason King - Peter Wyngard was actually gay and known as Petunia Winegum in the industry (who cared little about these things)

A cool and stylish chap whose entire life is somewhat mysterious, mainly due to his own evasiveness.
Sometime married and a father, it seems his career demise was due to his cottaging and penchant for casual gay sex.
In the 1970s, of course this was not a good thing.
I can’t help but admire the man for his devil-may-care attitude

There is ARRSER who uses his picture as an Avatar. He likes to wibble on about conspiracies.

Some girl magazine held a poll and readers voted him the man they'd most like to take their virginity.

Plus he arranged for Ornella Muti to be lightly tortured in Flash Gordon.

Not bad for a man born with the name Cyril Goldbert.
 
Technically IIRC he is Sir Maurice Micklewhite as he asked to be knighted in his own name in honour of his father
2016
The legendary British actor, born Maurice Micklewhite, has legally changed his name to the showbiz moniker he adopted in 1954 because of the rise in airport security checks prompted by Islamic State.

“An airport security guard would say, ‘Hi, Michael Caine,’ and suddenly I’d give him a passport with a different name on it,” Caine said. “I could stand there for an hour. So I changed my name.”

Bit of both worlds at one point

He was knighted under his real name, not his stage name, so officially he is now Sir Maurice Joseph Micklewhite. A royal official said he could, however, call himself Sir Michael if he wanted to.

He got the Caine part of his name from 'The Caine Mutiny' which was on in Leicester Square when he was casting about for a stage name.

Lots of people know that.

I didn't...

We had interdepartmental hockey at Worthy Down. Our opponents included a number of the WRAC hockey team. I volunteered for goalkeeper cos I got helmet, mask, flak jacket, box, pads, etc. I was better protected than your average Felix.

Rest of the team ran away from contact.
