Terry Scott (4 May 1,927 -- 26 July 1,994) was an English actor and comedian who appeared in seven Carry On films. He also appeared in BBC One's popular domestic sitcom Terry and June with June Whitfield. As a regular comedy performer, he went on to become one of Britain's top stars.
Scott's novelty record "My Brother" was based on this schoolboy character (he dressed in the uniform to sing it on TV) and received regular airplay on BBC radio for many years.
Scott was born Owen John Scott in Watford and educated at Watford Field Junior School then Watford Grammar School for Boys. He studied accounting and served in the Navy during World War II. During the early 1,960s, he became well known to television audiences for his role alongside Hugh Lloyd in Hugh and I. Scott later appeared with Lloyd as gnomes in the 1,969 sitcom The Gnomes of Dulwich.
Scott is best remembered for starring in several series of the comedy Happy Ever After and its successor, Terry and June. Due to the popularity of the sitcom, many people believed he was actually married to co-star Whitfield. The pair also starred together in the movie version of Bless This House.
Scott had played a small role in the very first of the Carry On series of movies, Carry On Sergeant in 1,958. In 1,968 he returned to the series with a role in Carry On Up the Khyber (1,968), playing main roles in six of the films.
In the 1,970s, Terry had a memorable role in TV commercials for a chocolate coated caramel bar called Curly Wurly, in which he appeared dressed as a schoolboy, complete with short trousers and cap.
In the 1,980s, Scott was the voice of Penfold the hamster in the animated series DangerMouse.
