MILLER, Harry Idris " Tony"
Actor, husband, father, grandfather, painter, Bay Street man. Born February 26, 1910, in Dolgellau, Wales. Died March 27 in Toronto of natural causes, aged 97.
By Carol A. MILLER, Page L6
Tony once told us he remembered the sound of bells ringing in his village announcing the end of the First World War. He was the son of hardworking English parents and had two sisters who by all accounts spoiled him.
Soon after he graduated from school in 1926, he was told to report to The Imperial Tobacco Company of Great Britain and Ireland Ltd. for his first job.
It lasted only months, since he caught the acting bug and went on to pursue his passion in theatres across England. It landed him on stage in London at the Old Vic Theatre with the likes of Peter Ustinov, Laurence Olivier and Alec Guinness. When he started onstage, he assumed the name Anthony HULME, which led to his being called Tony offstage.
During this time he met his first wife, Eve, also an actor. By the late 1930s he'd ventured into film. But then the war broke out, and Tony joined the Royal Air Force as a radio operator and communicator (he demobilized as a flight lieutenant).
Eventually, he was posted overseas to Naples, where he met a beautiful and lively young lady, Kay, who became his second wife. Returning to England after the war, they married and had two children, Christopher and Carol. Within a few years, Tony had returned to the theatre and to film; he played the character Paul Temple in several films (a sort of precursor to The Saint series).
In the mid-1950s, Tony and Kay decided to immigrate to Canada and a new life. He began working for a mining company on Bay Street in Toronto. As we grew up north of the city, we watched our father commute to work and back, eat supper, then be off to his first true love - the theatre. He was a founding member of Theatre Aurora and The Curtain Club theatre in Richmond Hill, Ontario Tony loved the countryside and the garden. He was happiest building things such as stage sets or extensions to our homes.
In the early 1970s, Tony and Kay parted company after 28 years. He moved to Toronto, where he continued to be active in theatre, television and radio while working on Bay Street.
Soon he met his third wife, Joanne, a vivacious and outgoing lady. They travelled, produced theatre, entertained and enjoyed life to its fullest. He renewed his love of painting, exhibiting in Toronto.
After more than 30 years, Joanne bid farewell to her soulmate this spring. The theatre has gone dark for this actor. He played many roles, all of them with enthusiasm led by a passion for knowledge. "Life well-spent is long."
Carol A. MILLER is Tony's daughter.
