Harry Andrews Overview:

Character actor, Harry Andrews, was born Harry Fleetwood Andrews on Nov 10, 1911 in Tonbridge, England. Andrews died at the age of 77 on Mar 6, 1989 in Salehurst, England .


Stern-faced, solid-headed British actor with dark hair. After he swapped a largely Shakespearian stage career (begun in 1933) for films, Andrews' jutted jaw and determined expression came much into call for sergeant-majors, martinet figures and similar forbidding roles. He later moved on to fanatics of various shapes and shades, with one or two gentler roles for welcome relief. Died from a viral infection complicated by asthma.
