Miles Anderson is an English actor with an impressive resume on the British stages and TV screens.

BiographyEdit

Miles Anderson's childhood, the son of Major-General John Anderson and writer Daphne Anderson, placed him at the heart of the historical change in Africa in the 1950s and 60s. Educated at Prince Edward School, his father commanded the Rhodesian Army in the pre UDI days and in 1964 was removed by the then Prime Minister for his opposition to the Unilateral Declaration of Independence, and two years later the family left the country.

Anderson's adventures across the globe in exotic lands as Malaya, Singapore, Zambia, with the Iban tribe in Brunei involving a head-to-head with a honey bear, along with his training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, followed by experiences in British theatre and American movies, and his forays as a fisherman in Greece, have combined to provide a vast array of anecdotes and stories. A teller of fascinating, hair-raising, often hilarious, and frequently poignant tales, Anderson has become a highly popular raconteur.

Anderson has been acting on stage and on screen for many years; perhaps best known in recent times for his television appearances as Colonel Aidan Dempsey in Ultimate Force, Roger O'Neill in the award-winning House of Cards, Terry Fox in Holby City and Colonel Dan Fortune in the hit series Soldier, Soldier, all of them for the British TV. Most recently he was seen as Major Marchbanks in the BBC adaptation of The Ruby in the Smoke, he appeared in 2007 in the sixth series of the crime-drama Waking the Dead and in 2008 he made a brief appearance as Edward Tunstall in the BBC's flagship soap, EastEnders.

Since 2009 he narrates the popular New Zealand documentary TV program The Lion Man.

His stage appearances in the West End and for the Royal Shakespeare Company have won him acclaim with, amongst others, The Witch of Edmonton, The Twin Rivals, Macbeth, The Weir, Oliver! and Twelfth Night. He was also the first ever man to play Peter Pan in the Trevor Nunn's acclaimed production of the same title. He was awarded the 1982 London Critics' Circle Drama Theatre Award for Best Supporting Actor of 1981 for his performances in The Twin Rivals and The Witch of Edmonton and was nominated for an Olivier Award for Sigismund in Calederon's Life's A Dream.

He has worked with such Directors as Richard Attenborough, Trevor Nunn, Adrian Noble, Max Stafford-Clark, Sam Mendes, Paul Seed, John Caird, Ian Rickson and Dominic Cooke.
