Biography CLOSE THE FULL 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.
