Remarkable not to find a word aobut his flamboyant style and appearance (not sure if "dress sense" is quite the right word), one of the things he's best known for. Surely there should be something about that. Also a pic if at all possible. Flapdragon 13:25, 28 March 2006 (UTC)


Is he really Jewish? What is the source? HustonJMarble 19:41, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Fictional death[edit]

He appears as himself in season three of The League of Gentlemen, his character dying in a traffic accident. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:59, 25 May 2008 (UTC)


Have I missed something? Where does the Llewelyn come into the name? Brakn (talk) 21:16, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

How do you mean? As far as I know, Llewelyn-Bowen is the full surname, with a hyphen (or space) in it. According to this article, Llewelyn-Bowen was his father's surname as well, though this Wikipedia article says otherwise, and his wife calls herself Mrs. Llewelyn-Bowen. I haven't found anything about his middle name. Leena (talk) 06:31, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

I thought it might be interesting to find out where the Llewelyn come into the family. His family tree was on "Who Do You Think You Are" last night and there was no mention of it.

Laurence was registered at birth as Bowen as was his brother Edward. His father's birth was registered as Trevor L. Bowen and according to his death his middle name was Llewellyn (4 Ls). He was married as Trefor L. Bowen.

Was the LLewellyn- bit just a middle name that joined with the surname Bowen? Brakn (talk) 09:40, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

He was called Laurence Bowen, without the Llewelyn while at Alleyn's School. Camayoc (talk) 21:32, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Commercial Links[edit]

A link to his books on amazon? A link to his commercial sites? I'm removing them because they look like blatant advertising. If anyone disagrees, feel free to revert. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:33, 10 November 2008 (UTC)


Obviously his ancestry is, but there's nothing on his upbringing here. He also sounds 'terribly' English. (talk) 16:11, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Welsh is not a nationality. I changed his nationality to what it is - British —Preceding unsigned comment added by Realtóg (talkcontribs) 16:26, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Should be British, he was born and raised in England - And he's terribly snobby-English. I don't think the Welsh want him, I'll relieve them from their care :P --Τασουλα (Shalom!) (talk) 20:45, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
