Printed below is Noel Harrison's biography as featured in the programme for the 1968 production of Joe Egg in Los Angeles.
NOEL HARRISON became a star and an idol of American youth through his portrayal of secret agent Mark Slate on the NBC-TV series, The Girl From UNCLE.
He began as a performer at the age of 17 in Ipswich, England in classical repertory.
While working as an actor he also sang in small clubs and coffee houses, and soon found himself travelling throughout Europe as a cafe entertainer.
In the process he learned to speak, act and sing in four languages.
Since those early days he has appeared in important and diversified roles on the English stage and has also made five motion pictures.
On this side of the Atlantic Mr Harrison has performed in many major night clubs, most recently headlining at the Persion Room of the Plaza Hotel in New York.
He will be all over the dials this fall on such TV shows as The Beautiful Phyllis Diller Show, the Jerry Lewis Show, Guide to the Swinging Bachelor, Hollywood Palace and others.
During the past summer he appeared in stock in Half a Sixpence and also re-created the now famous Ray Bolger role in Where's Charley? on the Kenley Circuit. He has also implemented his acting career by recording four LP albums, the latest of which is the Reprise album, "The Great Electrical Experiment Is Over." It includes four of his own compositions.
The son of Rex Harrison, he is the first to admit that being the offspring of a famous star can have its drawbacks; however, making it on his own has dispelled any hang-up he might have had at one time.
He won the PHOTO-PLAY award for the most promising newcomer for his role in The Girl From UNCLE.
He is married to Canadian-born, former London fashion model Sara Eberts.
The Harrisons have four children, Zoe, Cathryn, Simon and Harriet. Also having an outdoor menagerie that includes two horses, a pair of polo ponies, five dogs, one monkey, 15 chickens, two Siamese cats and a mynah bird, they are currently looking for larger quarters.
