      Alan Lake (24 November 1940 – 10 October 1984) was an English actor, best known as the third husband of Diana Dors. Born in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire on 24 November 1940 of Gypsy descent, Lake studied at RADA and started work in 1964. In July 1970 Lake was involved in a pub brawl for which he was sentenced to eighteen months in prison later that year (his friend, the musician Leapy Lee, was sentenced to three years for stabbing the pub's relief manager), although he was released after serving a year. Often appeared with his wife Dors until her untimely death. Depressed and grieving for her, Lake committed suicide in 1984.
