Mia Martin, Benny Hill and Johnny Trayhorne

John Trayhorn is a diminutive English actor known for his appearances in "The Benny Hill Show" and "Z Cars." Not much is known about his life. He was born on August 15 1954 in Enfield, London, and got his acting start in the movie "Hoverbug" before moving on to television, getting appearances in "The Wednesday Play," "Thirty-Minute Theatre," "Doomwatch" and "Z Cars." On the December 22, 1971 episode of "The Benny Hill Show," he was credited as John Trayhorne and played the son of Benny's German tennis player, Otto Stuk. He was also in the show's tag where he ogled the female police officers. Not much is known about his life afterward; he seemed to have dropped out of acting after his "Benny Hill" appearance, possibly starring on stage afterward, but that is unconfirmed. Most likely retired later in his life, he passed away May 6, 2008 in Grange-Over-Sands, England from a heart attack.
