David McCallum

David Keith McCallum (born September 19, 1933 in Glasgow) is a British actor. He is best known for his role as llya Kuryakin on The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

McCallum began his career as a bit-part actor in British films of the 1950s. The Man From U.N.C.L.E., intended as a vehicle for Robert Vaughn, unexpectedly made McCallum into a sex symbol. Although he subsequently became a familiar face on television, he was never able to achieve the same level of popular success as he had done with his role as Kuryakin, a Russian secret agent.

He was married to the actress Jill Ireland from 1957 to 1967. They had three sons, Paul, Jason, and Valentine, before she left him for another actor, Charles Bronson. He has two children, Peter and Sophie, with his second wife, Katherine Carpenter.
