Profile Bio Text
Naveen William Sidney Andrews (born January 17, 1969) is an Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated British actor. He is known for his roles in Grindhouse (2007) and the television series Lost as Sayid Jarrah. Andrews was born in London, England, the son of Nirmala, a psychologist, and Stanley Andrews, a businessman, both immigrants from Kerala, India. He was raised in Wandsworth, South London (beside the River Thames) and had what he has described as a "very repressive" upbringing. Andrews was raised in the Methodist denomination. At the age of 16, whilst at Emanuel School, he fell in love with his mathematics teacher, Geraldine Feakins, with whom he had a son, Jaisal, born in 1992. Andrews was quoted in an interview later on saying that "[his] father would call [him] a prostitute" about being famous at his school "for going out with a maths teacher". Andrews is in a relationship with actress Barbara Hershey, who is 21 years his senior, and they live in Los Angeles. The couple separated briefly in 2005 and, during that time, Andrews had a son, Naveen Joshua, with another woman, Elena Eustache. He and Hershey later reconciled. He has been involved in an on-going custody dispute with Eustache over Naveen Joshua; on January 7, 2009, Andrews was granted temporary sole legal and physical custody of the child. Andrews has spoken about his alcoholism and his two-year addiction to heroin in the mid-90s. Andrews also plays guitar and sings.
