André Maranne

Recommended Posts

Why, you ask? Well, I‘ve been researching into Maranne’s precise date of birth. If anyone’s interested I can keep you updated on what I find, now on Maranne’s own thread. 

 

Apart from that, Maranne will be 95 sometime next year and is famous in the UK for Pink Panther films, Fawlty Towers, Darling Lili, Doctor Who etc. He is also my favourite living actor and I think he really deserves his very own thread. Such a great actor and his mysterious date of birth may continue to prompt interesting discussion. Furthermore, Toby Hadoke said in April 2020, Maranne cannot remember being in Doctor Who. Dementia maybe?

 

Apologies for all this waffle, but I wanted to explain why I started a specific thread for Maranne. I felt I may have too much information on him for his related threads like the James Bond one (he only appeared in Thunderball for a few seconds by the way) which are not specifically designed just for news on Maranne and as I anticipate he’ll be on the 2021 DL, he would have his own thread soon anyway.

 

I have made lots of 2021 DL suggestions but I ask for Maranne over any of my other suggestions, please DeathList committee. This legend should not be a DL miss.

 

In future, I will try not to make new threads unless they are absolutely necessary, this one was just important to me.

Amusingly (for me) I was just watching Andre 10 mins ago in Yes Prime Minister as the European Commissioner.

 

As he was in a bunch of stuff I loved as a kid I was quite sad to learn he died in 1992. Then delighted to learn that despite that handicap, he was still replying to fan mail in the past decade! :lol:

 

imo he's worthy of a DL spot (this argument is dead forever after some recent picks tbh) but unlikely to be picked!

I felt exactly the same way there.

So he's not  dead then? :unsure:

Given his current address, his current phone number, his until recent fan mail replying and that he looks after his wife are all known information, it's a tough one. He might just be alive...

 

Although I did like the person on another forum who said "he was alive in Brighton in 2005 but then I lost track". He's lived in the same bloody house for the better part of 60 years!

Post containing Maranne's phone number hidden.

 

We already have enough proof he's still alive; posting that kind of info is a bit too much.

Oh, no! I was just going to phone him tonight.

 

"Hello! Is it André Maranne speaking?"

"Yes, I am André Maranne"

"Are you alive?"

"I suppose"

"You sure?"

"I am"

"CoffinLodger still not conviced..."

"Tell him to fuck off"

 

A worthy call.

I'm in the mood for some André Maranne fan fiction. Anyone?

Preferably some erotic story between him and the Pink Panther (comic version).

I wouldn’t be surprised if Maranne’s wife, Moira, had died recently, as I cannot find her on www.britishphonebook.com but I can find André under surnames Maranne and Maillol (birth name). Moreover, Toby Hadoke tweeted in April 2020, that André was currently caring for his wife full time.

 

In any case, I suspect Moira’s death would be a terrible blow for André and I still would strongly recommend having him on the 2021 DL.
