Genial Australian star familiar from a multitude of roles through the 60s and 70s and beyond. I always remember him as Miss Marple's (Margaret Rutherford) long suffering detective foil in that jolly series of films.
Actor who starred in more than 100 films and TV programs in his native Australia and in Britain. In a career that lasted more than 60 years, Tingwell probably was best known for his roles on the TV shows Emergency Ward 10 in Britain and Homicide and Neighbours in Australia. He had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and fell ill two weeks before his death in Melbourne, Australia on May 15, 2009.
