CARACTACUS POTTS Dick Van Dyke, 92
Having starred in 1964 hit Mary Poppins, Dick was first choice for eccentric inventor Caractaus Potts. It was yet another feather in the cap for the successful comic, whose TV series The Dick Van Dyke Show was a huge hit. And he hasn’t stopped working since! The grandfather-of-seven starred in long-running TV series Diagnosis: Murder and will appear in the upcoming Mary Poppins sequel.
