Other Info: A veteran actor who has appeared on stage in New York as well as London.
He claims he has never seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show or Shock Treatment.

Regarding his death: Rocky Horror creator Richard O'Brien, who played butler Riff Raff in the 1975 film, said that, in real life, Gray could not have been more different from his on-screen persona.

"He was a charming man with a dry wit and a low tolerance of pomposity in others," he said.

As well as the cat-loving Ernst Stavro Blofeld in 1971's Diamonds Are Forever - Donald Pleasance and Telly Savalas also played the role in other 007 films - Gray starred in 1967's You Only Live Twice as Henderson, Bond's contact in Japan.

A spokeswoman for Bond film makers Eon Productions said today: "We are extremely sad to hear this news. Everyone will remember Blofeld with the white cat in his arms. Charles was a great actor in a memorable film."

He was also in great demand as a voice-over artist for commercials.
