Profile Bio Text
Anthony Forwood (born Ernest Lytton Forwood, 3 October 1915 – 18 May 1988) was an English actor. In 1949 Forwood gained his first acting role when he starred in Ralph Thomas` Traveller`s Joy. That same year he appeared in thriller Man in Black opposite Sid James. Some time later, in 1952, he received a number of roles including Appointment in London with Dirk Bogarde, whom he was longtime partner and manager to. Incidentally, the aforementioned Ralph Thomas directed Bogarde in Doctor in the House and several of its sequels. He appeared with Boris Karloff in the mystery Colonel March Investigates and played Will Scarlet in The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men, which he is perhaps best known for. One year later he acted in the Oscar-nominated Knights of the Round Table opposite such high-profile actors as Robert Taylor, Ava Gardner and Stanley Baker, and in Terence Fisher’s Mantrap. His last role came in 1956 in Colonel March of Scotland Yard.
Forwood married, and later divorced, actress Glynis Johns. Their only child was actor Gareth Forwood (1945-2007). Forwood was the partner and manager of Dirk Bogarde. The couple lived together in Amersham, England then in France until Forwood`s death in 1988. By 1987 Forwood was dying of liver cancer and Parkinson`s disease. At this time Bogarde, a heavy smoker, experienced a minor stroke. On May 18 1988 Anthony Forwood died aged 72 in Kensington and Chelsea, London. After being witness to Forwood’s suffering, Bogarde was determined to encourage voluntary euthanasia for terminally ill patients.
