Anthony Andrews, *the* Scarlet Pimpernel.


Anthony Andrews (born 12 January 1948 in London) is a British actor. Andrews grew up in the North Finchley district of London. At the age of eight he undertook dancing lessons, making his stage debut as the White Rabbit in a stage adaptation of Lewis Carol's Alice in Wonderland. After a series of short term "fill-in" jobs that included catering, farming and journalism, he secured a position at the Chichester Theatre where he worked as an assistant stage manager and later as a stand-in producer.

    But of course it is the performances of the two actors that really remain in your mind. As Oscar, Anthony Andrews brings with him all the bearing, stage presence and technical prowess that you would expect. When he rages, it feels violent and bitter so that you are pulled up sharp in your seat. When he’s sarcastic or manipulating, you rather despise him and want to get your own back on him. When he’s vulnerable and weakened you feel sympathy and you realise he is only human too. You have a constantly changing opinion of him, which helps maintain the pace and intensity. Joshua Miles’ Eddie is a troubled, difficult soul, lacking a direction for his energy, but with whose frustrations you instantly identify, and who you are willing throughout the whole play to be able to turn his life around and have a future. At so many different times throughout the play, his eyes tell a story of unseen, unspoken horror and anguish, and it’s a terrific performance.

    In the new series of The Syndicate, the critically acclaimed BBC drama about Lottery winners, Anthony Andrews plays an elderly aristocrat living in a country pile — so naturally, when we meet in a quiet corner of the Groucho Club, in London, I say that it’s good to see him stepping out of his comfort zone at last. Ha ha.
