Peter Wyngarde passes away aged 90

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Jason King himself, Peter Wyngarde, has passed away at the age of 90 years old.

The iconic actor was known for playing Jason King in the TV shows Department S and Jason King. He also had key roles in The Avengers, Doctor Who, The Prisoner, and Flash Gordon.

His agent and manager, Thomas Bowington stated that Wyngarde “was one of the most unique, original and creative actors that I have ever seen. As a man, there were few things in life he didn’t know. I sometimes nicknamed him the King because he simply knew everything. He was a mentor on everything you can think of, from sports cars to how to make a good cup of tea and how to do a tie and shirt. He died at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital (in London), and even then he was saying that you shouldn’t button the upper button on a shirt. As a person he was the most exceptional person I met in my life and a great mentor and teacher.”
