The brother of actress Linden Travers, Bill Travers began his own stage career in 1947; three years later he was seen in his first film, The Wooden Horse. Travers became a star in the role of the physical-culturalist title character in Wee Geordie (1955), an assignment that required him to "beef up" right along with his character. The husband of actress Virginia McKenna, Travers co-starred with his wife on several occasions, notably in the 1966 box-office success Born Free. Bill Travers both wrote and acted in Ring of Bright Water (1969) and An Elephant Called Slowly (1973), and served as director on the Born Free-like Christian the Lion (1976).
