Ed Sanders (born 10 May 1968 in Wimbledon, London) is an English carpenter, actor, and television host. He learned carpentry at his father's behest to help keep himself employed between acting jobs.
Move to the United States
In 2004, Sanders moved to the U.S. with his wife and son. He was hired to work as a carpenter and designer on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, where he was severely injured, slicing through his hand, nearly severing his thumb. After months of surgery and therapy, he returned to the show.
Limey Yank Productions
In 2006 Sanders started Limey Yank Productions, a creative production company, with American writer Whit Honea. The company name is a play on the slang terms "Limey" due to Sanders being British, and "Yank" as Honea is from the U.S.
Sanders' wife, Gioia (née Gagliano), an Italian-American magazine and fashion-show make-up artist, gave birth to triplet daughters on May 5, 2007 in Los Angeles, California: Scarlette, Azure and Lucia. The couple also has a son, Max (born 2003).
