Andrew Sachs Wiki Biography

Andreas Siegfried Sachs is a Berlin, Germany-born British actor better known simply as Andrew Sachs, who is best known for his BAFTA-nominated role as Manuel in the BBC television sitcom “Fawlty Towers”. Born on 7th April 1930, Andrew has both German and Austrian ancestry but is a British national. One of the most talented actors in British film industry, Andrew has been actively entertaining us since 1959.

A highly regarded actor who has managed to continue his prominence in the British film industry for more than 50 years as of now, just how wealthy is Andrew? As of early 2016, Andrew has been counting his net worth at over $10 million. Needless to say, his involvement in showbiz for all these years has been the most significant in adding to his riches. Being a part of a highly successful television series like “Fawlty Towers” and movies like “Revenge Of The Pink Panther”, “Run For Your Wife” and several more have also obviously added a lot to Andrew’s net worth.

Raised in Berlin and North London, Andrew left Berlin with his parents at the age of eight to escape the Nazis and to settle in London. Having a keen bent of mind towards acting, Andrew initiated his career working on radio productions. His actual screen debut was in the film “The Night We Dropped A Clanger” that released in 1959. After this, he appeared in several television series including “The Saint”, and “Randall And Hopkirk” during the 60s and 70s. Obviously, at this point of his career, Andrew’s net worth began to rise extensively.

Eventually, Andrew starred in numerous British movies such as “Hitler: The Last Ten Days”, “Frightmare”, “Are You Being Served?”, “History Of The World”, “Romance With A Double Bass” and “Nowhere In Africa” among many others. More recently, he appeared in the movies “Run For Your Wife” and “Quartet”, both of which released in 2012. All of these movies have not only helped Andrews maintain his prominence in the film industry as an actor over the years but has also helped him add significantly to his net worth.

Apart from these, Andrew has also given voice to children’s animations including “The Gingerbread Man”, “Little Grey Rabbit”, “Asterix And The Big Fight”, “William’s Wish Wellingtons”. His voice can also be heard in several television documentaries such as the “…From Hell” series as well as “Eyewitness videos”, which have added to his net worth.

Andrew’s life and career have not always been sunshine, as in 2008 Andrew became part of controversy along with comedian Russell Brand in his show “The Russel Brand Show”. Russell and show presenter Jonathan Ross made some explicit prank ‘phone calls to Andrew’s granddaughter Georgina Baillie, which later resulted in the resignation of Russell from the show.

As of now, Andrew has been living in Kilburn, London along with his wife Melody Lang. The couple has been together since 1960 and has three children together. For now, 85 years old Andrew has been enjoying his life as a successful actor while his present net worth of $10 million complements his daily life in every way possible.

1[on criticism that Manuel was a racist stereotype] If it's insulting to the Spanish what is Basil to the British?
2I was up to take over as Doctor Who (1963) but didn't get the part. Sylvester McCoy played it, but at that time they put my name forward for it. Shame, I'd love to have done it. You can be very self-indulgent and go mad and do all the wonderful things, but the script or the director should pull you back and say, 'Come on, stop fooling about, just stop acting, just do it, be in the spirit of the script'. I hope I would have done that, but I never got the chance. One of my sad tales of failure in life.
3His show is embarrassing, it is not an interview show, it's the Jonathan Ross show. A lot of people like the show but I don't, and I'm not alone. I will be watching the show out of curiosity to see what is what. His quickness of mind is worth retaining but with the good points go the bad ones maybe. It is extraordinary that a man of that experience allowed himself to be shown like that. It is just self restraint he has not got. I like listening to him, but I don't want to see him after Friday. Another apology is not necessary, he could apologise to the BBC or all of the other people embarrassed by his actions. There is a long list of people involved. (On the return of Jonathan Ross to the BBC in 2009 following his suspension for leaving obscene messages with Russell Brand on his answerphone)
4I love travelling.
5I loved working with John Cleese, but there are many others and, if they are team workers, rather than behaving like "stars", I get on fine with practically all of my colleagues who are skillful and conscientious but not too serious.
1He turned down the role of Victor Meldrew in One Foot in the Grave (1990), as the first few scripts hadn't impressed him. He later regretted that decision.
2Diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2012 and was confined to a wheelchair.
3His father, an insurance broker, was Jewish; his mother, a librarian, was Catholic of part-Austrian ancestry. His father was arrested by the Nazi authorities in 1938, but was later released after intervention by a friend in the police force. The family fled Germany, and settled in London.
4He auditioned for Rada, but only had enough money to attend two terms. He was hired as an assistant stage manager at a theater in East Sussex, and subsequently the Liverpool Playhouse and the Globe theatre in London.
5Ex-father-in-law of Charles Baillie.
6He supported CIWF (Compassion In World Farming) and other animal charities.
7He recorded children's books on tape and classics like Charles Dickens, Evelyn Waugh, George Eliot etc.
8Father of Kate Sachs and grandfather of her daughter Georgina Baillie. He was also the adopted father of his wife's sons from her previous marriage, William Sachs and John Sachs.
9Was paid damages by the BBC after an incident filming Fawlty Towers (1975), where a jacket was treated with acid by the special effects department to look as if it was on fire, and really did burn through to his skin. He bore the scars for the rest of his life.
10On the set of Fawlty Towers (1975), he was nearly knocked out with a heavy saucepan by John Cleese, when Sachs made an unexpected move during filming after five days of rehearsals. Sachs had a headache for two days.
11There is a wax figure of him as "Manuel", from Fawlty Towers (1975), in Madam Tussaud's in London.
12He is the son of Katharina (Schrott-Fiecht) and Hans Emil Sachs. His father was Jewish and his mother was Catholic, and of part Austrian descent. He escaped Nazi Germany as a boy - after his father, who had been arrested by the Nazis, was released just days before Kristallnacht.
