Happy Bday Peter Cushing

May 26th celebrates the birthday of the late Peter Cushing, a legendary British actor and fellow vegetarian.

Mr. Cushing's unforgettable roles included the starkly evil Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars IV. During his long and successful career, he also portrayed Dr. Who, Victor Frankenstein, Van Helsing, Sherlock Holmes, and many other roles. His stern and gaunt appearance belied a compassionate heart.

Specific recommendations for a healthy diet include: eating more fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and grains; cutting down on salt, sugar and fats. It is also advisable to choose unsaturated fats, instead of saturated fats and towards the elimination of trans-fatty acids."

I remember he played Sherlock Holmes in a TV movie! I didn't know he was vegetarian. I agree, he was a great actor.

If anyone is wondering how Cushing fits in to the Doctor Whoniverse, he starred in two sixties era films, Doctor Who and the Daleks and Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. They were made to capitalize on how insanely popular the Daleks were after their debut in the second story of the TV series. They aren't 'real' in the sense of being part of the canon. The characters have different backgrounds and such.
