Born in Marseilles, France, Wyngarde appeared in many popular television series during the 1960s, including The Avengers (1966-7), The Saint (1966-7) and The Prisoner (1967). However he is best known for his lead role as Jason King in television series Department S (1969-70) and Jason King (1971-2). Following an arrest in 1975, Wyngarde's career never fully recovered, later appearing in small television roles, such as Timanov in Dr Who (1984) and Langdale Pike in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (1994).
