Interesting Facts

1 He turned down the role of Victor Meldrew in One Foot in the Grave (1990), as the first few scripts hadn't impressed him. He later regretted that decision.
2 Diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2012 and was confined to a wheelchair.
3 His father, an insurance broker, was Jewish; his mother, a librarian, was Catholic of part-Austrian ancestry. His father was arrested by the Nazi authorities in 1938, but was later released after intervention by a friend in the police force. The family fled Germany, and settled in London.
4 He auditioned for Rada, but only had enough money to attend two terms. He was hired as an assistant stage manager at a theater in East Sussex, and subsequently the Liverpool Playhouse and the Globe theatre in London.
5 Ex-father-in-law of Charles Baillie.
6 He supported CIWF (Compassion In World Farming) and other animal charities.
7 He recorded children's books on tape and classics like Charles Dickens, Evelyn Waugh, George Eliot etc.
8 Father of Kate Sachs and grandfather of her daughter Georgina Baillie. He was also the adopted father of his wife's sons from her previous marriage, William Sachs and John Sachs.
9 Was paid damages by the BBC after an incident filming Fawlty Towers (1975), where a jacket was treated with acid by the special effects department to look as if it was on fire, and really did burn through to his skin. He bore the scars for the rest of his life.
10 On the set of Fawlty Towers (1975), he was nearly knocked out with a heavy saucepan by John Cleese, when Sachs made an unexpected move during filming after five days of rehearsals. Sachs had a headache for two days.
11 There is a wax figure of him as "Manuel", from Fawlty Towers (1975), in Madam Tussaud's in London.
12 He is the son of Katharina (Schrott-Fiecht) and Hans Emil Sachs. His father was Jewish and his mother was Catholic, and of part Austrian descent. He escaped Nazi Germany as a boy - after his father, who had been arrested by the Nazis, was released just days before Kristallnacht.


1 [on criticism that Manuel was a racist stereotype] If it's insulting to the Spanish what is Basil to the British?
2 I was up to take over as Doctor Who (1963) but didn't get the part. Sylvester McCoy played it, but at that time they put my name forward for it. Shame, I'd love to have done it. You can be very self-indulgent and go mad and do all the wonderful things, but the script or the director should pull you back and say, 'Come on, stop fooling about, just stop acting, just do it, be in the spirit of the script'. I hope I would have done that, but I never got the chance. One of my sad tales of failure in life.
3 His show is embarrassing, it is not an interview show, it's the Jonathan Ross show. A lot of people like the show but I don't, and I'm not alone. I will be watching the show out of curiosity to see what is what. His quickness of mind is worth retaining but with the good points go the bad ones maybe. It is extraordinary that a man of that experience allowed himself to be shown like that. It is just self restraint he has not got. I like listening to him, but I don't want to see him after Friday. Another apology is not necessary, he could apologise to the BBC or all of the other people embarrassed by his actions. There is a long list of people involved. (On the return of Jonathan Ross to the BBC in 2009 following his suspension for leaving obscene messages with Russell Brand on his answerphone)
4 I love travelling.
5 I loved working with John Cleese, but there are many others and, if they are team workers, rather than behaving like "stars", I get on fine with practically all of my colleagues who are skillful and conscientious but not too serious.
