Thanks for that info - it seems highly unlikely that the Radio Times would feature an article about a bit part player back in 1982 … though that’s probably the year when ‘My Name is Nobody’ was screened, on BBC 2, if I remember correctly?
It seems way too specific an area of interest for anyone outside the SW fan community to give a damn.
I remember from my time on Facebook, that the question of the man’s identity was still being asked by Tom Betts … that could be 5 years or more. The question was asked of Antonio Ruiz, who played ‘Fernando’, the El Paso street urchin in FAFDM. But considering that Antonio was 14 at the time, didn’t speak any English, and was surrounded by many other actors and crew of various nationalities … why would he remember this old dude? … I can’t remember names of people I went to school with, and I was in contact with them daily and for years.
I really don’t get why people concoct these so called hoax stories - it’s a rather pathetic pastime. Perhaps if they had to give proof of their own identity, to be published alongside what they present as fact, they would be a lot more reluctant to waste people’s time.
The Wikipedia page for George Hilton was full of spurious nonsense (I see it’s now been amended ) claiming that he was educated in England, and had such a strong English accent, that he had to be dubbed by other actors … total bullshit!
I met George in Almeria 2013, and asked about this …. to begin, he apologised for his poor English, which wasn’t so poor - but he in no way sounded English. He didn’t know who was responsible for the wiki page, but suggested that the information was contrived because he had made some movie in England, where he was no doubt dubbed by a native speaker.
Anyway … to anyone reading this, who thinks online hoaxing is clever or entertaining, I’d say, it’s time to move out of your parents house, and even maybe find a girlfriend … or even just some friends !?
