Welcome To The Tim Curry Frequently Asked Questions Page. Hopefully this page will answer some of the more specific questions you may have about Tim. Can’t find your answer? Is it something you think we might know? Email us:firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note this website is currently not affiliated with Tim – so your questions will not be seen nor read by him. Also keep in mind we are giving the best possible answer we can offer as loyal and dedicated fans – the actual answers/100% fact etc may only be known by Tim himself.
1. Is he married?
No. Tim has never been married. He has referred to the fact he was 'almost married' once, many years ago in an interview.
2. Does he have a current partner?
The honest answer? We don’t know. Tim is a remarkably private man and always has been. He may have a partner but if so there is no public reference to them either from Tim himself or any other source.
3. Ah…So is he..
Let’s stop you there. To be fair, we knew you were hoping we’d answer this at number one. No one is sure about Tim’s sexuality apart from Tim himself and that’s the way it should stay. He has never publicly labelled his sexuality nor has there been any (reliable) evidence of Tim dating either sex. So there you go. The answer is: no one knows. Sorry!
4. Does he have any children?
No. Tim does not have any children. It was rumoured several years ago that he had adopted two boys. This was a mistake made by a fan site at the time who wrongly assumed two young boys he was photographed with must be his adopted sons. The boys in question are the sons of Marcia Hurwitz – Tim’s close friend and voiceover agent.
5. We read the biography and enjoyed it very much. (Awgh Shucks! Thanks!) But we hardly find out anything about Tim’s personal life, why?
Ah, the answer to this is quite simple. As discussed above Tim is a very private man and the details of his personal life have remarkably remained largely unknown. As Tim gets older he has discussed more aspects regarding his early life and some personal insights into his early career – but I’m afraid he remains largely a mystery. But hey – his professional achievements provide us with plenty to marvel at. We say good for Tim for keeping his private life private and creating a career through his talent alone!
6. Okay. But what about his family? Any ideas?
Tim had one older sister, Judith, who passed away in 2001 due to a brain tumour. He has a nephew and two nieces. Tim's mother passed away in June 1999 after a two year battle with cancer. She was in England and Tim and his sister were with her at the time. His father died at age 45, when Tim was 12.
7. Is he from a theatrical family?
No. His father was a Royal Navy Chaplain & his mother was a School Secretary. His maternal grandfather was also in the Navy and his father’s father was a miner and builder.
8. Did Tim go to University?
Yes. Tim went to Birmingham University in the UK between 1965 – 1968. It is wrongly quoted on many fan sites and editorials that Tim attended Cambridge University. Tim never studied at Cambridge – he graduated from Birmingham in 1968 and secured himself a job in Hair the same year. He spent a gap year (when he left high school in 1964) travelling and working on boats in Morocco, France & Belgium before attending university in 1965.
9. Where does he live now?
Tim currently lives in Los Angeles and has since 1988.
10.How tall is he?
Tim is about 5 8” tall. He is listed in casting directories as 5 9” but he admits he is closer to 5 8” and various people who have stood next to him would have to agree!
11.How old is he?
Tim is 70. He was born on the 19th of April 1946.
12. What colour are his eyes?
Tim’s eyes are green.
13. Does Tim have a fan club?
Well that depends. Tim does not have an Official Fan Club – he used to have one in the 70s complete with newsletters and personal notes from the man himself. However, legend has it that Tim closed the club down after bickering between fans became unbearable and people were becoming upset. It’s rumoured he said from that day on he would never allow another Official Fan Club to start up for the sake of everyone’s feelings and sanity. The closest to a Fan Club you can find now is over at curryfest.proboards.com – we are not affiliated with Tim in anyway – but we are a very friendly bunch and you’ll find out lots of cool stuff about Tim and meet some lovely new friends! Aww.
14. So. Is this an official website?
No. At the moment this website is completely unofficial and we have no contact with Tim or his management. This is something we would love to change and when we have completed the site to make the best Tim resource in the universe we shall see what happens!
15. Oh Okay. So you can’t get me in touch with Tim?
No. I’m afraid not.
16. Do you know how I can contact him?

London, EC2A 1RS

Please note Tim does not personally reply to his fan mail because of time restraints. If you include a Stamped Addressed Envelope you may receive an autograph and if you include a photograph to be signed it may find its way back to you. Do not send anything valuable as it is not guaranteed you will ever get it back. Although Tim does not reply to letters he has mentioned reading his fan mail in various interviews.
17. Can’t I write to him at his house?
We do not have his personal address and he has told fans he does not open fan mail that finds its way to his home.
18. I have a Tim Curry Collection. Where can I find a copy of…
If you’re looking for a certain dvd, video, photograph, playbill, record etc etc we’re living in an exciting age for completing your collection. Ebay is always a fantastic source as are sites such as play.com and amazon. Rarer television is forever being added to youtube – where you can see lots of things that are unavailable to purchase (and lots of things that are available to purchase. Tut!) curryfest.proboards34.com also has a flea market where you can request rarer items and see if anyone is able to help!
19. I’ve heard Tim hates Rocky Horror, is this true?
No – Tim has only ever spoken fondly of Rocky Horror.
20. What’s he up to at the moment?
