Noted Aussie actor, Leonard Teale, now on Wikitree, but not yet connected

+6 votes

Leonard Teale, as he was known to his later audiences, was a well-known Australian actor of radio, television and film known for his resonant baritone voice.  He was one of the pioneers of Australian television.  Have not yet been able to connect him to the main Tree.  Any help will be appreciated.

I added the wikidata info.

Could the connection be through one of the wives?
I've added his Danish great grandparents (from Haderslev in Denmark). His grandfather, Niels Benson Rasmussen was born Niels Bentzen Rasmussen. Benson would be an anglicised version.

Thanks Kenneth, well done!

I have also just added his WWII Service Records, and a link to his ASIO File which included details of his formal change of last name in 1962.

I’ll happily have a look to see if I can connect him.

I remember Leonard from the Homicide series very well. He served with my cousin, 458 Squadron in Tunisia. I have quite a bit on the family of Thiele which i will add. His grandfather was a bit of a larrikan.
