Born Angus Young in North Shields, Tyne-and-Wear, England, Alan Young’s family moved first to Scotland and then to Canada. He was performing on the radio by age 13; by 17 he had his own radio show on CBC. The show brought an invitation to perform on American radio, where he hosted the “Alan Young Radio Show” from 1944 to 1949. He made his screen debut with a supporting role in the 1946 film Margie, and turned more to acting after his radio show was cancelled in the 1949. He is usually remembered for his role in the 1960 feature The Time Machine. Alan Young was 96 when he died at the Motion Picture and Television Home in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, California.
