George Baker was a British actor who played several characters in the Bond film franchise, beginning with an uncredited appearance as a NASA enginner in 1967's You Only Live Twice. Shortly thereafter he appeared more substantially alongside Lazenby in 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service as Hilary Bray. Finally, in 1977's The Spy Who Loved Me, Baker portrayed Captain Benson.
His onscreen career stretched from 1953 to 2007 and included a number of other notable film and television franchises and titles, including the controversial I, Claudius, where he played Tiberius and the long-running science fiction series Doctor Who, where he had four-episode run in 1980. He also appeared as Inspector Wexford in The Ruth Rendell Mysteries. Humorously, he played character named "Jamus Bondus" in an episode of the short-lived BBC comedy series Up, Pompeii! He also starred along with Sean Connery in 1959 in ITV Play of the Week's adaptation of the play The Square Ring.
Baker passed away on 7 October 2011. His last on-screen appearance was in the comedy-drama series New Tricks.
