Jeremy was born in the town of Market Harborough in the middle of England. At the young age of five he was on stage in his school show enjoying acting and singing.
Following many appearances on children’s television, Jeremy’s big break came at the age of 17 when he landed a major role in the musical film Summer Holiday (1963) which starred the pop idol Cliff Richard (now Sir Cliff).
During the 1970s he made many other screen appearances, including the James Bond films, in which he portrayed the character ‘Smithers’ (Q’s assistant).
In 1978 he was starring in a hit television comedy series, “Agony” (1979), which was co-written by an American called Len Richmond. It was during this series that Jeremy was asked to play a small part in Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980). The part, of course, was ‘Boba Fett’ – proving the old theatrical saying that “there is no such thing as a small part”! Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983) soon followed and Jeremy was invited to reprise the role of Boba.
Since the early 1980s Jeremy has played many roles on television and on the stage in Since the re-release of Star Wars in 1997, the interest in the character of “Boba Fett” has meant that Jeremy has been invited to many sci-fi convention and events all around the world.
