Bill Travers Movies
The brother of actress Linden Travers, Bill Travers
began his own stage career in 1947; three years later he was seen in his first film, The Wooden Horse.
Travers became a star in the role of the physical-culturalist title character in Wee Geordie
(1955), an assignment that required him to "beef up" right along with his character. The husband of actress Virginia McKenna, Travers co-starred with his wife on several occasions, notably in the 1966 box-office success Born Free.
Bill Travers both wrote and acted in Ring of Bright Water
(1969) and An Elephant Called Slowly
(1973), and served as director on the Born Free
-like Christian the Lion
(1976). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
