More information

He was born in Kensington in London in 1934. His mother Collette Thomas was the first of Rex Harrison's six wives; they divorced in 1942. Harrison lived with his mother’s parents in Bude, North Cornwall, during World War II. At fifteen his mother took him out of school at Radley to live in the Swiss Alps. Harrison never returned to school and began ski-racing. He joined the Ipswich repertory theatre group and taught himself guitar, but his main interest and most of his spare time was spent skiing. At an early age he was a member of the British ski team, becoming its first giant-slalom champion in 1953, and representing Great Britain at the 1952 Winter Olympics in Oslo, Norway, and at the 1956 Winter Olympics in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy.
