David McCallum

The multi-talented David McCallum has racked up many accomplishments over time, including acting in films, theater, and TV, plus issuing his own music albums (McCallum is effective in several instruments). Given birth to David Keith McCallum on Sept 19, 1933, in Glasgow, Scotland, McCallum was encircled by music beginning young as his dad was a violinist (who performed for the London Philharmonic) and his mom a cellist. After providing cello a go, McCallum became entranced by such traditional authors as Chaucer, Kipling, Dickens, and Shakespeare, which influenced McCallum to provide acting a go as an adolescent. Before he could explore performing completely, McCallum enlisted within the Royal Western African Frontier Pressure around the African Platinum Coast in the first ’50s, which inadvertently helped McCallum plan what would become his personal acting part — as blond Russian agent Ilya Kuryakin in TV’s THE PERSON from U.N.C.L.E. — which McCallum performed from 1964 through 1968. Through the past due ’60s, McCallum released several albums which have since become novelty cult products among enthusiasts (? la William Shatner’s The Transformed Guy) — 1966’s Music: An integral part of Me, 1968’s Music: A LITTLE MORE of Me, and 1969’s Music: It’s Taking place Today! — which blended renditions of then-current strikes (the Beatles’ “Last night,” the Rolling Rocks’ “Fulfillment,” etc.) alongside McCallum originals. McCallum proceeds to act both in movies and Television, and retains a sizeable group of fans, as proven with the fanzine the McCallum Observer, that is released quarterly by superfan Lynda Mendoza.
