Andrew Sachs was born in Berlin to a Jewish father and a Catholic mother. He escaped with his family to England in 1938, aged eight. Speaking no English, he somehow survived various British schools before taking to the boards, most famously as Manuel in Fawlty Towers but with many major roles to his credit.
