Netflix Movies Starring Derek Bond

Scottish-born Derek Bond was a leading man of post-war British films fondly remembered for his portrayal of the titular hero in Ealing Studios' The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby (1947), an adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel. The actor was born in Glasgow on January 26, 1920, the son of a commercial traveler and a beautician. Educated at the Haberdashers' Askes School in Hampstead, he originally sought out a career as a reporter/journalist. When that didn't pan out he turned to acting, training with the Finchley Amateur Dramatic Society and making his professional theatre debut with "As Husbands Go" in 1937. A member of the Colchester Repertory Company (where he met his first wife), he played a number of both comedic and dramatic roles until his burgeoning career was interrupted by WWII. Commissioned with the Grenadier Guards' 3rd Brigade, he was awarded the Military Cross after seeing action and suffering serious wounds in North Africa. Read more on iMDB
