Name: Andrew Alexander
Current Location: Queens Park, London
Day Job: Actor; currently in The 39 Steps in London’s West End
Daily Uniform: Preppy casual. Gant/Hilfiger
I have a few: Brain cells (only a few, according to my parents…)
The taste I couldn’t live without: Garlic
If I could cook for anyone: I would cook for my Hungarian grandmother, who has passed away now sadly. I would cook her Rakott Krumpli, a Hungarian dish she used to cook for me.
Any hidden talents? I can moonwalk badly.
One thing people would be surprised to know about you: I met and sang for the Queen.
You’re having a dream dinner party – who’s invited and what are you making? Errol Flynn, David Niven and Marlon Brando. I would make old fashioned’s and we would drink them all night.
I’m dying to go to: Rome, China, and The Fat Duck in Bray
Can you tell us a little about the British Opera Man Group? The group was called Teatro, a vocal quartet signed to Sony BMG. Our first album went Gold in the UK and went to number 1 on various charts across the globe.
Gotta ask… the mustache, for a part or part of every day? The mustache is definitely for a part! I’m in a 1930s play at the moment.
