Edward Andrews Overview:

Character actor, Edward Andrews, was born on Oct 9, 1914 in Griffin, GA. Andrews died at the age of 70 on Mar 8, 1985 in Santa Monica, CA and was cremated and his ashes scattered at sea.


Edward Andrews was an avuncular, heftily-built American actor whose big, beaming, bespectacled features could adapt just as easily to comic panic or coldly genuine menace. It was in the latter vein that he broke into films (in The Phenix City Story) after years of solid work on Broadway, but he was soon instantly identifiable as characters whose hale-and-hearty exteriors hid a wide variety of characteristics beneath. He was an incorrigible stealer of the stars' limelight in his peak (1955-66) years. He died from a heart attack.
