MCM: Pip Torrens, Part One


British actor Pip Torrens is so prolific, I’ve had to cut this Man Candy Monday post into two parts, because there’s just so many frock flicks to cover! Today we’re going to tackle the first 20-ish years of career from 1986 to 2005. Frustratingly, while there are over 50 frock flicks to Pip Torrens’ name, a lot of his films are not going to be listed because we can’t find photos from them. So if we are missing some from the list, feel free to screen grab an image and send it to us!


Lady Jane (1986)


A Handful of Dust (1988)


Absolute Hell (1991)


Poirot: The Mystery of the Spanish Chest (1991)


The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles: Young Indiana Jones and the Curse of the Jackal (1992)


Jeeves and Wooster: Aunt Dahlia, Cornelia and Madeline (or, Comrade Bingo) (1992) and Honoria Glossop Turns Up (or, Bridegroom Wanted!)  (1993)

    This is the first time I’ve ever been able to put a name to the face; the perfect actor who merges with his character.

    This actor is in everything, and he always knocks it out of the park. I usually associate him with stern characters. So, whenever I see that he’s meant to play a softy, I always think, “oh, they miscast him,” but then he proves me wrong. I don’t have a favorite because there are too many roles to choose from, and also because the characters I remember him most as are highly unlikable. Great choice!

    Really good character actor. Also good in A Dark Adapted Eye, which is set in the 40s and 50s
