Eric Thompson

Born: 9 November 1929, Sleaford, Lincolnshire, England, UK
Died: 30 November 1982, Camden, London, England, UK

Although Eric Thompson had acted in front of the camera many times, he is probably best remembered for narrating and doing the voices for the English speaking version of the children's television programme The Magic Roundabout (1964). He is the father of actresses Emma Thompson and Sophie Thompson.
