Andreas Malandrinos

Andreas Malandrinos (Greek: Ανδρέας Μαλανδρίνος; 14 November 1888, in Greece 11 July 1970, in Surrey) was a Greek-born actor who started appearing in British films from 1930, until his death 40 years later in Surrey, England.[1] He was fluent in six languages and used this talent to good effect to flourish as a dialect comedian in British music halls.[2][3]

Many of his film appearances were so fleeting that his characters often had no names, only descriptions, e.g. "Valet with violin" in The Prince and the Showgirl (1957) and "Woodcutter" in The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967).[3] During his stage career, Andreas Malandrinos billed himself simply as Malandrinos; conversely, his movie billing was often simply "Andreas."[2]
