Author notes provided by SyndeticsMichael York, May 27, 1942 - Michael York was born in Fulmer, England, on May 27, 1942. He performed on stage with the National Youth Theatre in London and on international tours. He also belonged to the Oxford University Dramatic Society, having graduated Oxford in 1964. He was also a member of the Dundee Repertory, and Laurence Olivier's National Theater Company - where he worked with Franco Zeffirelli, who gave him his film debut as Lucentio in "Taming of the Shrew" in 1967 and his breakthrough role as Tybalt in "Romeo and Juliet" in 1968.
He first appeared onscreen in "The Mind Benders" in 1962, and got his first good film role in "Accident" in 1967. He also appeared on TV earning acclaim for his portrayal of Jolyon in "The Forsyte Saga" in 1967. Perhaps York's best role was the part of Brian Roberts in "Cabaret" in 1972, followed by Count Andrenyi in "Murder on the Orient Express" in 1974 and D'Artagnan in several Musketeers films.
