Philip Guard

Philip John Guard (born 29 November 1928 in Rochford, Essex) is an English stage actor.[1]

Guard has appeared occasionally in film and TV, but has been more prolific on stage.[2][3]

He was married to the actress Charlotte Mitchell who died in 2012; they separated in 1968. His sons are the actors Christopher Guard and Dominic Guard, and his daughter is Candy Guard the writer and animator.[4]

Guard appeared, unwittingly, along with Mark Dignam and John Bryning, on the fade-out of The Beatles' song "I Am the Walrus", on which can be heard a 1967 BBC radio broadcast of King Lear, with Guard playing "Edgar".[5]
