Steve Headland recently gave us a few more Only Fools and Horses characters to recall on our series of ” where are they now?”
“These are some of the minor characters and where they are now.
- David Thewlis who was Stew in Its only rock and roll is Remus Lupin in the Harry Potter films.
- Jake Wood who was Rodney’s office assistant in Jolly Boys Outing is Max Branning in Eastenders.
- Diane Langton who was June (Dels girlfriend) in Many Happy Returns and Royal Flush is playing Grandma in the Billy Elliot musical.
- Andree Beranrd who was Nervous Nevrys in Dates and Sickness and Wealth, has been in Hollyoaks as Liz Burton and only a few weeks ago was in a Doctor Who episode The Shakespeare Code.
- Ewan Stewart who was Dr Robbie Meadows in Sickness and Wealth stars in a Scottish Soap Opera called River City.
Until you watch Sickness and Wealth for a second time, you then notice that Nervous Nerys appears in this episode as well as her famous one, Dates.
I regularly attend collectormania which is held twice year at MK Dons Stadium in Milton Keynes. It was last held at the end of May 2011 and is normally attended by science fiction actors and sports stars. So I was surprised that Paul Barber, John Challis, Patrick Murray, Roger Lloyd Pack and Christopher Ryan made late appearances as they weren’t on the original guest list.”

We recently saw that several actors had appeared in other rolls since their Only Fools and Horses days.
Take Robert Glenister who played Myles in Mother Nature’s Son. You may be just as familiar with his brother Philip Glenister. He is probably best known for his role as DCI Gene Hunt in Life On Mars. In contrast to the brash detective Robert is quite. Robert Glenister was born 11 March 1960) is a popular British actor probably best known, amongst other roles, as con man Ash “Three Socks” Morgan in the hit British TV series “Hustle”. - Robert Glenister
For example Phillip McGough who played Arnie in Chain Gang back in 1989 is an English television actor. McGough was cast as secret service detective Edwin Woodhall in the Alan Bleasdale-written drama The Monocled Mutineer and appeared in Brookside as Charlie Dawson who at first appeared to be a friend of Heather Haversham’s then husband but turned out to be a drug dealer. He also recorded alien voices for Doctor Who:The Stolen Earth but the scene was cut before filming.
Another actor Treva Etienne who played the Vicar in Miami Twice is an English actor appearing in several well known movies. He was born in London. At 21, Etienne was the youngest actor to play Macbeth on the stage of the Royal National Theatre. He was last seen in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl as Koehler and London’s Burning as Tony Sanders - Treva Etienne
Also Sarah Duncan who played Vicky in A Royal Flush has become a writer and recently appeared on the game show pointless - Lady Victoria on a pointless game show?
