Telly Savalas is an American entertainer whose long career spanned over four decades. Also known for his deep, resonant voice and dark hair, he is most notably known for playing Lt. Col. Theo Kojak in the television series Kojak as well as Bond villain Stavro Blofield in the movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, for which he received an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role. As of this writing, Savalas is executive producing the musical revamp of the William Shakespeare’s play The Merchant of Venice, which has been postponed several times because of disputes between its producer and the play’s director. No doubt, Telly Savalas will be back on our screens again at some point in the near future.
But what exactly is a Wikipedia? Known as the encyclopedia of information about anybody or anything that can be found about anyone or anything, a Wikipedia is a repository of information about individuals, things, and places. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is no exception, so any person who had something to do with the production of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (either as an actor, as a producer, or as a background player) can be typed into a wiki, and additional biographical data can be added. For Telly Savalas, it seems, the Wiki was a very important tool in keeping him in line as an actor, which explains why he willingly gave this information to the public, even going so far as to include photographs with descriptions of where he had been and more.
