"The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" actress Celia Imrie welcomed her son with a famous "Pride & Prejudice" actor. However, she only shared details of their arrangement after his birth.


Actress Celia Imrie and her son Angus Imrie share their striking looks and their careers as Angus followed in his famous parents' footsteps and became an actor.

He studied at the Univerisity of Warwick from 2012 to 2015, earning a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Theater. He then went to the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, focusing on acting.

He is most recognized as Claire's creepy stepson, Jake, in Pheobe Waller-Bridge's "Fleabag" and as Prince Edward in the fourth season of "The Crown" alongside Olivia Coleman, who played Queen Elizabeth II.

Before portraying the Queen's lesser-known son, Angus leaned his acting talents to play another royal. He acted as Prince Arthur in "The Spanish Princess" and Young Merlin alongside Patrick Stewart in "The Kid Who Would Be King."


He also featured in "Emma" alongside "The Crown" costar Josh Cornwell and "The Queen's Gambit" actress Anya Taylor-Joy. Although he has portrayed more serious characters, Angus also has a soft side.

The actor recently used his voice acting skills to play a sensitive scorpion named Nigel on Netflix's latest animation, "Back to the Outback," about a group of animals who journey from a Syndey zoo to the Australian outback.


Acting is not the only creative outlet for Angus. He is also a writer. "The Archers" star wrote an audio drama, "Homeward Bound," which comes with a stack of postcards listeners can color.

When Angus is not focusing on expanding his career, he gives back to his community. In September 2021, he participated in the Brighton Marathon to raise funds for a charity organization called Barnardo's.


Angus raised over £1000 on his fundraising page on the website Just Giving. On the page, he explained that Barnardo protects and supports the UK's most vulnerable children by providing practical and emotional support and helping to place children with foster and adoptive parents.

With Angus's career and charity contributions thus far, there is no doubt his famous mother is proud of him. Celia welcomed Angus in 1994 with the late "Pride & Prejudice" actor Benjamin Whitrow.


However, Celia and Whitrow's relationship was rather interesting. In her 2011 autobiography, "The Happy Hoofer," Celia explained that she wanted to have Whitrow's baby before it was too late, so she laid out her terms for him.

If he agreed to father her child, she would not ask him for anything, live with him or marry him. She would also be responsible for choosing and financing the child's education and upbringing costs.

Although Celia told Whitrow he did not need to be active in the child's life if he did not want to, Celia shared he was a wonderful father to Angus and Angus was equally as devoted to his father.
