I did this portrait of the actor Errol Flynn as part of my ongoing “Birthday Boy” series. I posted it on my social media channels to mark his birthday on June 20.

Flynn was an Australian-born, American actor during the Golden Age of Hollywood – 1920s to 1940s. He achieved fame for his roles in romantic swashbuckler Hollywood films and was the natural successor to Douglas Fairbanks. One of his best-known roles was Robin in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938). His portrayal of the character was named by the American Film Institute as the 18th-greatest hero in American film history.

Flynn had a turbulent and controversial private life – he was married three times, he faced charges of statutory rape and allegations during World War II of being a Nazi spy. He died on October 14, 1959, at the age of 50 from a heart attack.
