There has been sadness in the entertainment world today, after it was announced that Number Six, the star of the cult 1960s TV show, The Prisoner, had died in Los Angeles.
Number Six, 80, succumbed after a short illness, but died a free man, not a number.
The brilliant actor also starred as King Edward Longshanks in the 1995 Mel Gibson film Braveheart, as well as in the TV series Danger Man and a couple of episodes of Columbo.
Six was born in New York, but was raised in England and Ireland, before moving to The Village, where he spent most of the rest of his life. He frequently tried to leave The Village, but found it difficult to escape its charm.
Until today, that is.
Number Six was once considered for the role of James Bond, but the administrator of The Village, Number Two, reasoned that Number Six as 007 didn't add up.
