Jamie Bamber aka Archie Kenneddy
My Jamie Drawing (coming soon)
"When I was four. I played the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of OZ
directed by my Mum who was an actress. But in later years: I never admitted it to
anyone properly until I got into LAMDA (Drama School) in 1996. I never wanted
to appear an impractical dreamer-something; which young, aspiring actors can
invariably seem to be." - Jamie Bamber

So, what is Kenneddy's role in the books by C.S. Forester ?
Not a very big one :@ ( As far as I know he's only in the first book (Mr Midshipman Hornblower) . Here is the part with Archie in it :

Midshipman Hornblower was walking the lee side of the quarterdeck, as became his lowly station as the junior officer of the watch, in the afternoon, when Midshipman Kennedy approached him. Kennedy took off his hat with a flourish and bowed low as his dancing master had once taught him, left foot advanced, hat down by the right knee. Hornblower entered into the spirit of the game, laid his hat against his stomach, and bent himself in the middle three times in quick succession. Thanks to his physical awkwardness he could parody ceremonial solemnity almost without trying.

"Most grave and reverend signor," said Kennedy. "I bear the compliments of Captain Sir Ed'ard Pellew, who humbly solicits Your Gravity's attendance at dinner at eight bells in the afternoon watch."

"My respects to Sir Edward," replied Hornblower, bowing to his knees at the mention of the name, "and I shall condescend to make a brief appearance."

"I am sure the captain will be both relieved and delighted," said Kennedy. "I will convey him my felicitations along with your most flattering acceptance."

Both hats flourished with even greater elaboration than before, but at that moment both young men noticed Mr. Bolton, the officer of the watch, looking at them from the windward side, and they hurriedly put their hats on and assumed attitudes more consonant with the dignity of officers of holding their warrant from King George.

(c) 1950 by C. S. Forester

Bamber's interest in acting was first nurtured at St Paul's , an all-boys school in Barne....but he had an ulterior motive."It meant I could do plays with pupils from the nearby grils' school-definitely an incentive. The shows were quite lavish and I really enjoyed them. I knew acting was for me"
