Earl Cameron dead: How did Doctor Who and Thunderball actor Earl Cameron die?

The star faced racism during his career and yet managed to carve out an impressive résumé despite the prejudice.

Speaking to the Guardian in 2017, he said: “No doubt about it. Unless it was specified that this was a part for a black actor, they would never consider a black actor for the part. And they would never consider changing a white part to a black part.

“So that was my problem. I got mostly small parts, and that was extremely frustrating – not just for me but for other black actors.

“We had a very hard time getting worthwhile roles.”

On his ground-breaking career, Cameron said: “I never saw myself as a pioneer.

“It was only later, looking back, that it occurred to me that I was.”
