Russell Hunter (18th February 1925-26th February 2004) played Uvanov in The Robots of Death.

Easily recognisable as an established TV supporting actor is perhaps better known for his role as 'Lonely', friend and confidante to Edward Woodwards' 'Callan'.

Hunter's popularity grew in this role to the point where during later episodes of the series he was afforded starring roles, uncovering a dangerous plot whereby his friend, British Spy David Callan, had been abducted by KGB agents.

Hunter appeared in many other British TV dramas and sitcoms during the 1960s & 1970s.

He was supposed to play the part Willie Mackay in The Highlanders but dropped out and had to replaced by Andrew Downie.

He reprised his role as Uvanov in five out of six of the fully dramatized Doctor Who spin-off series Kaldor City.
