Biography

Hugh Paddick is best known for his work on 'Round the Horne', one of the most successful British radio shows of the sixties and still one of the most loved. His characters included 'Brad Smallpiece', 'Binky Huckerback' and, of course, Julian, one half of the ever camp 'Julian and Sandy'. When 'Round the Horne' finished in 1968 Paddick went on to appear in films such as The Killing of Sister George (1968) and Up Pompeii (1971) before TV took over his career. His last memorable performance was in Blackadder the Third (1987) in which he appeared alongside Kenneth Connor as 'Keanrick', one of the two actors in the episode 'Sense and Senility'. Paddick died in 2000.
