When it comes to crediting actors appearances in ‘the Prisoner,’ some are credited by their number, others by the job they perform in The Village, or by what they are. Thomas Heathcote is credited as “Lobo Man,” while John Hamblin and Michael Billington are credited as “1st Woodland Man and 2nd
” Why not as Number 16 and, well its
impossible to make out Michael Billington’s number, rather than as woodland
men? That credit makes me think of them as two men who live in the woods, which
clearly they do not, it’s just a place where they appear in ‘A Change of Mind.’
Which makes them unique, being credited as to place, whereas many actors are
credited by the job they do, Guardian, gardener, electrician etcetera. Woodland Man.
