Personal life and career
The details of Wyngarde's early life are often very sketchy, including his exact date of birth. His birth name was (most probably) Cyril Louis Goldbert.
Wyngarde's best known television roles include the series The Adventures of Ben Gunn, Rupert of Hentzau, Department S and Jason King. He also played Sidney Carton in a 1957 miniseries adaptation of A Tale of Two Cities, a version of Number Two in The Prisoner, various roles in the anthology programmes BBC Sunday-Night Theatre and ITV Play of the Week, and had guest roles in The Avengers and The Saint. His filmography includes Alexander the Great (1956), The Siege of Sidney Street, The Innocents (1961), Night of the Eagle, Himmel, Scheich und Wolkenbruch, Flash Gordon, Tank Malling.
Since the mid 1990s, Wyngarde has largely discontinued acting in television and film productions. In fact, his role as Langdale Pike was one of his last major ones. He still does occassional voiceover work for British television documentaries.
