Biography

This tall, attractive blond Englishman has often been cast in aristocratic roles, many of which aired on public television in the USA. Anthony Andrews delivered what should have been a star-making turn as the charmingly charismatic but alcoholic Sebastian Flyte in the Granada TV miniseries "Brideshead Revisited" (1980-81; aired in the USA on PBS in 1982). Yet, unlike his "Brideshead" co-star Jeremy Irons, he was unable (or unwilling) to capitalize on his small screen success.
