    Welsh actor


      Born Reginald Alfred Truscott-Jones, 3 January, 1907, Neath, Wales, and died of lung cancer on 10 March, 1986 in Torrance, California, USA.

      There are a few different stories about why he changed his name. Some say that he adopted a variation of his step-father's surname of Mullane. In Ray Milland's autobiography, Wide-eyed In Babylon (1974), he explains that after many hours of arguing with his agent, he got up and said, "I don't really care what you call me. I must keep the initial "R" because my mother had it engraved on my suitcases. Other than that, I don't really care, but if you all don't come up with something soon, I'm packing these suitcases and going back to the mill lands where I came from!", thus Ray Milland was born.
