Frederick Samson Robert Morice "Freddie" Fox (born 4 May 1989), is an English actor. His early screen career highlights include roles as singer Marilyn in a biopic about Boy George,[3] King Louis XIII in The Three Musketeers,[4] and Edwin Drood in The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

Early life[edit]

Fox was born on 4 May 1989, in Hammersmith, London, England. He is the son of the actor Edward Fox and his second wife, the actress Joanna David.[2][4] His elder sister is the actress Emilia Fox.[6]


From 1994 to 2002, Fox was educated at Arnold House School,[7] a junior independent school for boys in the St John's Wood area of London, followed by Bryanston School, a co-educational senior boarding independent school in the market town of Blandford Forum (near the village of Bryanston) in Dorset.[4] He then attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, from which he graduated in 2010.[8][9]

Personal life[edit]

While promoting the Channel 4 comedy, Cucumber, in 2015, Fox said that he doesn't wish to define his sexuality, adding "I’ve had girlfriends, but I wouldn’t wish to say ’I am this or I am that’, because at some time in my life I might fall in love with a man." He also expressed that bisexuality is often misunderstood, and that people can have meaningful relationships "no matter what sex they are."[10] Fox dated actress Tamzin Merchant for two years.[11]
