As well as voicing the heroic puppet pilot in the hit 1960s TV show, Rimmer also appeared in some of the biggest film franchises of all time.
He starred in James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me and had smaller roles in Star Wars, Superman and Batman movies.
He was also a familiar face on ITV's Coronation Street in the late 1960s as American GI Joe Donnelli.
He returned to the soap in 1988 as another character, Malcolm Reid.
