Naveen Andrews

Born Naveen William Sidney Andrews in London on January 17, 1969. His parents were both Indian immigrants from Kerala, India. When he was 16, he had an affair with his Mathematics teacher, Geraldone Feakins. She bore his child, Jaisal, in 1992. Naveen (which means "new" in Hindi) was quoted in an interview later on saying that "[my] father would call [me] a prostitute" albeit being famous at his school "for going out with a maths teacher." He auditioned for drama school and was accepted at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Two of his classmates were Ewan McGregor and David Thewlis . His studies paid off when he won a role in Hanif Kureshi's film, London Kills Me (1991). He is best known for his role as that 'Sikh bloke' in The English Patient (1996) and as Sayid in the popular television series Lost (2004). He splits his time between homes in Los Angeles and Hawaii, where Lost (2004) was filmed.
