Michael Van Wijk
Around the World in 80 Seconds (as "Minus One")
Gladiators (as "Wolf")
Born in India, the man who came to be known as Wolf moved to Britain with his family at the age of three. Originally an advertising executive, he later took up bodybuilding and became the popular "bad guy" in Gladiators. After the series finished, he moved to New Zealand where he and his wife ran a children's play centre.
He was the Barbarian featured on the contraversial adverts for the Palace Software computer game of the same name, advertised (sometimes with heavy censorship) in the late 1980s with a partially-clad Maria Whittaker.
