As an early Christmas present for his fans, Showmaster’s London Film & Comic Con announced Andrew Gower today as one of their guests for their summer edition.
The event will take place from 24 – 26 July 2020 at Olympia London. Andrew will only attend on Saturday, 25 July, and he’ll be joined by fellow Carnival Row actor Simon McBurney (Runyan Millworthy) with more announcements expected soon.
Tickets for the event are on sale here, and you can buy photo op tickets for Andrew as well.
We think this is an excellent opportunity for all Carnival Row, Poldark, Outlander and Being Human fans to meet Andrew, the man behind Ezra Spurnrose, James Hadfield, Bonnie Prince Charlie and Cutler… Nick Cutler.

Andrew is looking forward to meeting you all!
The lovely ladies at Omnia, a free online zine, have included an article about Andrew Gower in their latest edition.
He’s very unassuming, small and skinny and rather awkward, but he’s an excellent actor, very emotive and funny, and absolutely deserving of everything good that comes his way.
You said it Daisy and Nancy!

Mark Gatiss has been interviewed by EW.com about the finale of Being Human season 4, “War Child”. It’s a great little interview, made all the better by the question about the trailer:
Can you explain why he’s rubbing Cutler’s face in the preview?
Because I wanted to. I said to Andrew [Gower], “I just got an idea. I should run my hand down your face and stick my finger into your mouth. Is that alright?” And he said, “Yeah, whatever you like.” So I did it. What I like about it is it’s so invasive. First of all, he has those filthy fingernails. I thought, he regards this man as less than the dirt on his shoes and he should just show it. It’s also slightly pervy. I enjoyed that.
You can watch said scene here:
EW.com have published an interview with Being Human executive producer Toby Whithouse about Being Human episode 4×07 “Making History”, a very Cutler-centric episode.
Does Cutler have any humanity left in him?
From the moment that he sees his wife killed, that’s it. It’s been interesting to look at the reactions to him on online. I’m very pleased to see that Cutler has a lot of fans. There are also quite a lot of people who are hoping that there is a bit of decency left in him and that he will redeem himself. That’s something Andrew [Gower] imbued in the character, because it wasn’t on the page. That people are having questions about him is a testament to his performance, because in my mind, the best way of telling if Cutler is lying is if his lips are moving.

There’s also a lovely, spoilery review of the episode on the Independent website, full of gushing praise for Andrew Gower. And another gushing review on Cultfix, this time spoiler free.
