Edward Felix Tudor-Pole will be 64 this week.
In an interview he explained the origins of his surname Pole and that was after his great-grandfather researched the family history and discovered it went back to the Norman Conquest and learned that he had a connection to royal house of Tudor and pinned the two names together.
He formed the band Tenpole Tudor in 1977 that lasted five years. He has many acting rolls including appearances in the 1980 film The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle, The Rocky Horror Show and Absolute Beginners in 1986. In 1993, he replaced Richard O’Brien as the host of the game show Crystal Maze.
In more recent times he appeared as a street preacher in the second season of Game of Thrones.
Let’s remember the band’s biggest hit from 1981.
