Interesting Facts

#Fact
1He was once engaged to Anita Ekberg, who died four days after him.
2He was considered to star with John Wayne in Rio Bravo (1959), Circus World (1964) and The War Wagon (1967), before he finally got to work with Wayne in The Train Robbers (1973).
3Rod Taylor fell down about two weeks before his death and was hospitalized. He returned home, and he subsequently had a heart attack and died in his bed at his home in Beverly Hills, CA, surrounded by his family and friends.
4Is one of two actors to appear in movies, directed by Alfred Hitchcock and Quentin Tarantino. Bruce Dern is the other.
5He was considered for the role of Colonel George Taylor in Planet of the Apes (1968) before Charlton Heston was cast.
6Ran his own TV production company, Rodlor Inc..
7Briefly pursued a career as a painter before turning to acting.
8His father was a steel-construction contractor and draftsman, and his mother, a children's book author.
9He originally planned to become an artist, and as a teenager he studied at the East Sydney Technical and Fine Arts College. He became interested in acting. He saw Laurence Olivier in "Richard III" on an Old Vic tour, and this inspired him to become an actor.
10Was originally considered for the role of Roper in Enter the Dragon (1973) but was thought to be too tall, compared to the actor he'd be sharing many action scenes with, Bruce Lee -- the part eventually played by John Saxon.
11Taylor had completely retired from acting when Quentin Tarantino offered him the role of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in Inglourious Basterds (2009). At first Taylor declined the part, suggesting that Tarantino should cast Albert Finney (who had played Churchill to great acclaim in The Gathering Storm (2002)), but eventually the director talked him into it.
12His second wife, Mary Beth Hilem, died on March 7, 2009.
13Attended East Sydney Art College.
14Played Tarzan in an Australian children's radio serial in the early 1950s.
1520th Century-Fox considered him for the astronaut role in 1968's Planet of the Apes (1968) but, perhaps seeking a bigger box office name, gave the part to Charlton Heston.
16Father of Felicia Taylor with his second wife, Mary.
17Father: William Sturt Taylor; Mother: Mona Stewart

Quotes

#Quote
1"Pretending to still be the tough man of action isn't dignified for me any more. There comes a time when you're over the hill and there are plenty of great looking younger actors who can take your place. The action stars of today are making some wonderful films. There are no 'I could do it better' feelings in me. The younger they come, the better they get. That's why Olympic records are broken." (from a 1987 interview)
