Michael York, OBE was born Michael Hugh Johnson on March 27, 1942. York is an English actor. York made his film debut as Lucentio in Zeffirelli’s The Taming of the Shrew (1967), then was cast as Tybalt in Zeffirelli’s 1968 film adaptation of Romeo and Juliet with Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey. He also starred in an early Merchant Ivory Productions film, The Guru (1969). In Cabaret (1972) York played Brian Roberts, and in 1977 reunited with Zeffirelli as a fiery John the Baptist in Jesus of Nazareth. York starred as D’Artagnan in the 1973 adaptation of The Three Musketeers. One year later the sequel was released (roughly covering events in the second half of the book) titled The Four Musketeers.  These two films are still popular and generally accepted as the best film version of the famous Dumas adventure story. Fifteen years later, most of the cast (and crew) joined together in a third film titled The Return of the Musketeers based on the Dumas novel Twenty Years After. 

York played King Arthur in a revival of Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot, which began its run at the La Mirada Theatre in Southern California, and toured nationally in 2006 and 2007. York resides in California. He married Patricia McCallum on 27 March 1968. His stepson is Star Wars producer Rick McCallum. Original Michael York Autograph, signed on 3 x 5 inch Index Card.
