||played Craig Stirling in The Champions
An American, born 1939 on the 1st of December in New York. He joined Nemesis in November, 1965 after being a US air force pilot. Craig is the main, most senior member of the three, but he is not the "star". All three share the time equally, depending of course on each assignment, so no one agent is the main focus in the series. Craig is an intelligent man who is more likely to act on instinct rather than spend much time comtemplating his possible course of action. In this respect he is different from Richard and Sharron.
Craig is also one who has the plans and these are also usually thought out on the spur of the moment , but he is very successful. The strange aspect of the two male leads, Craig and Richard, is that neither of them are ladies' men, unusual because almost always in this genre of TV or film it is a prerequisite that the lead male has to be suave and sophisticated. Craig is perhaps the man closest to that desciption, but he certainly isn't a stereotyped 1960s secret agent. He never uses his looks, or uses women, to get information, a definite plus in the series which makes it unique in it's genre. As said above, he is intelligent, but so are the others, and he uses his vast knowledge to save himself and the others many times during the series. Physically, he is the strongest of the trio, and he uses his strength many times to fight his way out of trouble, most of the time accompanied by Richard, but Sharron also can beat up the baddies (with some accurate karate chops!).
