On a Facebook post about the 1982 premiere of The Scarlet Pimpernel, a couple readers commented ‘what ever happened to Anthony Andrews?’ which prompted me to look him up on IMDB. He’s still alive and kicking and had several interesting historical costume roles after playing the demmed elusive Pimpernel. Plus, he had some fabulous ones before and around that time, so he’s due for a Man Candy Monday feature!
Earl of Silverbridge in The Pallisers (1974)
Steerforth in David Copperfield (1974)
Lord Robert Stockbridge in Upstairs, Downstairs (1975)
Lord Sebastian Flyte in Brideshead Revisited (1981)
Sir Percy Blakeney / The Scarlet Pimpernel in The Scarlet Pimpernel (1982)
Wilfred of Ivanhoe in Ivanhoe (1982)
Prince of Wales in The Woman He Loved (1988)
Mr. Edward Murdstone in David Copperfield (2000)
Stanley Baldwin in The King’s Speech (2010)
Colonel Barclay in Birdsong (2012)
Now you know what Anthony Andrews has been up to! Did you recognize any of his more recent historical costume movie or TV roles?
