David McCallum's father, David McCallum Sr., was first violinist for the London Philharmonic and his mother, Dorothy Dorman, was a cellist, so it's not surprising that David was originally headed for a career in music (oboe), studying briefly at the Royal Academy of Music. He left that, however, for the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. He made nearly a dozen movies in the United Kingdom before his critically acclaimed work as Lt. Wyatt in Billy Budd (1962). He is perhaps best known for his portrayal of U.N.C.L.E. agent Ilya Kuryakin in the hit TV series "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." (1964).
