Once home to Mr Stamp

The King of UK Cool lived on this street - but which door?

Location: Canal Road, Bow, E3

Description: Terence Henry Stamp (born 22 July 1939) is an Academy Award-nominated English actor, and a fine thespian talent.

Stamp, the eldest of five children, was born in Stepney, London, the son of Ethel Ester (nee Perrott) and Thomas Stamp, who was a tugboat captain.His early years were spent in Canal Road, Bow, in the East End of London - in fact on this very street - later in his childhood the family moved to Plaistow, Essex.

His brother, Chris, is a rock 'n roll impresario credited with helping to bring The Who to prominence during the 1960s. The young stamp grew up idolizing the film actor Gary Cooper after his mother had taken him to see Beau Geste at the age of three. He was also inspired by James Dean.

Stamp made his film debut in Peter Ustinov's 1962 film adaptation of Herman Melville's Billy Budd. Stamp's portrayal of the title character brought him not only an Academy Award nomination, but also international attention. He then appeared opposite Laurence Olivier in Term of Trial (1962).

Since then his career has gone from strength to strength - be it as an accomplished writer and author, giving speeches on climate change, or indeed being a great actor - I mean he stole the show wearing some of the choicest of Lizzy Gardiner's Academy Award-winning costumes for the comedy The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994) for director Stefan Elliot and starring with Guy Pearce and Hugo Weaving.

But after all this time, can you tell Shady which door on this street Terrence lived behind?
