Old New Zealand

...Mr. Lee Grant...


Mr. Lee Grant was the stage name of one Bogdan Kominowski, born Apr 22, 1945 of Polish Parents in a Nazi concentration camp near Dusseldorf. He emigrated to New Zealand with his mother in 1949. The "Mr." was added to distinguish him from an Auckland actress of the same name.

Lee Grant was New Zealand's first Television pop idol stemming from his appearances early in 1967 on the C'Mon music show.

In 1968 Lee grant moved to the U.K. and continued to release material some under his birth name, but as his popularity waned he turned to acting as a career.
