I saw Michael Billington's name in the credits of 'A Change Of Mind' and had to rewind for a looksee. He was one of the two toughs in the forest who tackle Number 6 during his workout. What was fascinating watching them fight was that both actors were considered for the role of James Bond at different times. McGoohan turned it down, and Billington ended up playing the part of Barbara Bach's lover who gets killed by Bond at the beginning of The Spy Who Loved Me, and was under consideration to fill Roger Moore's shoes had he taken an early (well, earlier) bath prior to A View To A Kill.
