Ian Macrae Hamish Wilson (2 July 1901 in Hampstead, London – December 1987 in Exeter, Devon) was an English small role actor who appeared in over 145 films during his career.[1] Most were small uncredited roles often playing meek public servants, professional men or busy bodies.[2] Film appearances included The Plank 1967, The Day of the Triffids 1962, Carry On Jack 1963, Two-Way Stretch 1960, Hell Drivers 1957, The Ugly Duckling 1959 and Rotten to the Core 1965.[3] His first film appearance was in the silent A Master of Craft in 1922, and his last was in The Wicker Man in 1973.[4] Several of his films were made by the Boulting brothers, who considered him a "good luck charm."[2] Wilson died in December 1987 in Devon.[5]
