From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia
Gerald Campion as a 29 year old 'Billy Bunter' from the TV Series of the same name

Gerald Theron Campion (April 23, 1921 – July 9, 2002) was an English actor best-known for his role as Billy Bunter in a 1950s television adaptation of books by Frank Richards.

The son of a screen writer, Cyril Campion, Gerald Campion appeared in numerous films and television programmes — mostly comedies — but his only major success was as Bunter, a juvenile role he played successfully despite being much older than his character. In 1979 he recorded an appearance in Shada, a Doctor Who story which was recorded in part but never broadcast.

After dropping out of acting, he ran a restaurant.
