Top Ten Unexpected Oxbridge Actors...(and directors)

It may come as a surprise (or not) that some of the country's  best performing minds have studied at one of the oldest educational institutions in the UK, Oxford and Cambridge. Here are just ten of the many actors and directors to have been produced by these elite institutions:


Joe Thomas

The first of two 'Inbetweeners' to be on our list, Joe Thomas, famed for playing awkward, resentful and hopelessly romantic Simon in the much loved sitcom. Joe studied History at University of Cambridge, graduating in 2006 with a 2:1. Despite such a good result, Joe maintains that he was easily distracted at uni, perhaps down to the fact that both he and Simon Bird (see next slide) acted as President and Secretary of the Footlights Drama Club at Cambridge.
