Herbert Lom

In this episode, host Charlie Connelly delves into the life of Czech–born British actor Herbert Lom. He was most identified for his performance as Charles Dreyfus in the Pink Panther series, an endearing character that was a welcome change from sinister accusations Lom constantly received as a Czech residing in Britain during the Second World War. He knew what it was to be an outsider, working hard to stand out in the industry and snatch a place at the heart of British society after gaining citizenship. Still, away from the stage and studio, he remained perpetually in transit between the Czech and British identity.
