Jamie Anderson is the younger son of the late Gerry Anderson - the man behind cult TV shows like Fireball XL5, Stingray, Captain Scarlet, Space: 1999, and of course Thunderbirds. Jamie had always wanted to follow in his father's footsteps since an early age - spending huge amounts of time with Gerry at Pinewood Studios and Cosgrove Hall in Manchester when he was growing up. Now, as managing director of Anderson Entertainment, Jamie is the man tasked with keeping the Gerry Anderson legacy alive, but also developing Gerry's unfinished works. Jamie was the driving force behind Anderson Entertainment's highly successful Kickstarter campaign - which raised funds to complete and publish Gerry's final novel "Gemini Force One". The campaign caught the attention of top International publisher Orion books, who went on to sign a three-book global publishing deal for the series. Jamie continues to work on development of Gerry Anderson's unfinished literary, film and television projects. Having lost his father in 2012 to Alzheimer's Disease, Jamie is also a celebrity supporter of Alzheimer's Society - regularly speaking at events, and helping to raise much needed awareness and funds. He also continues in his father's footsteps by supporting the International Rescue Corps as their vice-president.Read more Read less
