Lewis Collins Used To Be A Hairdresser: A Career In Photos

 

LEWIS  Collins, hairdresser-turned tough-nut actor, has died. Most famous for playing police enforcer William Bodie in the cult 1970s TV series The Professionals, Lewis succumbed to a prolonged battle with cancer.

Lord Grade, who launched the programme in 1977, told the BBC:

“It worked perfectly and the chemistry between the two of them was magic,” he said on Radio 4’s World At One. [Collins] was Bodie – he was a very macho character in real life. He got us into trouble one time where he had a few days off from filming where he went parachute jumping and broke his leg which held up the filming. But what you saw on screen was the same as what you saw off the screen – he was just a big, hunky, macho character with a lovely innocence about him.”
