Who Are Those Guys? Tim Condren


Stuntman and actor Tim Condren was born on October 22, 1926 in the United Kingdom. After doing his first stunt work in “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962), Condren's career as both an actor and stuntman took off in earnest in the mid-1960's. Outside of stunts, Tim was also experienced in archery and was an expert horseman (these two skills enabled Tim to portray either Apache or Sioux Indians in several Westerns made in America). Condren performed stunts and played small uncredited roles in the blockbusters “The Spy Who Loved Me” (1977) and “Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope” (1977). In addition, Condren participated in several rodeos as a trick rider and guest performer in the United States and put his fencing and sword-fighting skills to good use by working the show at the Tower of London as a knight. In his latter years Condren was a teacher at the London Stunt School with Alasdair Monteith. Tim died from cancer in a London hospital on July 19, 2006.
