Bitter, grumpy, sarcastic actor Andy Millman gave up his day job in the hope of achieving fame and fortune. So far he’s yet to land a speaking part, let alone saunter down the red carpet to pick up a BAFTA.

If only his agent wasn’t so stupendously useless. He and best friend Maggie, also a bit-part actor of little repute, can usually be found in the green room, swigging coffee, bitching about their peers or whining about their lot in life.
