Boa, Bruce

Bruce Boa

Bruce Boa (né Andrew Bruce Boa) was born on July 10, 1930, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada where he was also raised.  Boa attended Sir Adam Beck Collegiate Institute in London, Ontario, where he played football for the Spartans (in 1949 they were city champs).  
Can you spot him out in this picture?
Boa went on to play professional football (not soccer) in Canada for the Calgary Stampeders, in 1952.  
Boa left Canada via the ship Empress of Britain in early April, arriving in Liverpool on April 29, 1958.  By 1959, he met his future wife, Cherry D. K. Wilson (a native Brit and counseling psychologist), and settled in England to pursue acting. Bruce and Cherry married in late 1961.

Boa found many roles (generally as an American) on British TV and films.

Mr. Boa passed away from cancer on April 17, 2004, in Richmond upon Thames, Surrey, England, UK., he was survived by his wife Cherry; three children; an older sister, Marion Woodman (a mythopoetic author and Jungian analyst); and a brother Fraser Boa (a Jungian analyst, author, actor, director, producer).
