Enthusiasts of the Mickey Mouse house have had plenty of live action performances to treasure over the years, but arguably few are as beloved as Glenn Close’s take on Cruella de Vil
She first portrayed the villain in the 1996 movie and hopes were high when an origin story was announced, with Emma Stone set to tackle the character instead.
Directed by Craig Gillespie, Cruella has earned praise from critics and audiences alike, with Emma bringing something new and refreshing to the fashion designer while cast alongside the likes of Emma Thompson, Mark Strong, Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, Emily Beecham, and more.
It’s a star-studded ensemble, but a handful of audiences have placed emphasis on a lesser-known actor. So, Who plays the Baroness’ assistant in Cruella?
Cruella: Who plays the Baroness’ assistant?
- Jeffrey, the Baroness’ assistant, is played by Andrew Leung.
The character pops up throughout the film to assist the Baroness von Hellman (played by Emma Thompson) and is essentially a fashionista himself. His disliking towards Cruella is immediately made apparent.
Although Cruella may serve as many people’s introduction to his talents, some may recognise him from a number of projects.
According to IMDb, he first appeared on screens in a 2011 episode of PhoneShop (he played Young Wang).
Since then, he has gone on to star in such shows as Dirk Gently (Noel), BBC Comedy Feeds (Kim), Doctor Who (Dr. Chang), Jade Dragon (Nick), Quiz (Kevin Duff), Flack (Craig), and more recently Queens of Mystery (Dr. Daniel Lynch).
As for films, he was also in Come a Bright Day (Andrews, uncredited), The List (Sergej), Containment (Sergei), and Lilting (Kai) which also features Ben Whishaw. Additionally, short work includes Red (Carl) and Balsa Wood (Ted).
Taking his education into consideration, TV Over Mind highlights that he studied at East 15 Acting School and went on to appear in such theatre productions as All My Sons, Uncle Vanya, and Othello.
