Hopefully this page will answer some of the more specific questions you may have about Tim Curry & this website.
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?
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. What is Tim's sexuality?
4. Does he have any children?
No. Tim does not have any children.
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 has one older sister, Judith, who passed away in 2001. He has a nephew and two nieces. Tim's mother passed away in June 1999 after a two year battle with cancer. 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.

Tim is 72. 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?
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.
14. So. Is this an official website?
