We are all on a sliding scale. My relationships have been with women up until this point but it does not mean they will be for the rest of my life. I would not want to limit myself in that way — it would be utterly ridiculous.
— Freddie Fox about his sexuality

Frederick Samson Robert Morice "Freddie" Fox (born 4 May 1989), is an English actor who plays Freddie Baxter in both shows Cucumber and Banana.

Early life

Fox was born on 4 May 1989, in Hammersmith, London, England. He is the son of the actor Edward Fox and his second wife, the actress Joanna David. His elder sister is the actress Emilia Fox.


From 1994 to 2002, Fox was educated at Arnold House School, a junior independent school for boys in the St John's Wood area of London, followed by Bryanston School, a co-educational senior boarding independent school in the market town of Blandford Forum (near the village of Bryanston) in Dorset. He then attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, from which he graduated in 2010.

Personal life

While promoting the Channel 4 comedy, Cucumber, in 2015, Fox said that he doesn't wish to define his sexuality, adding "I’ve had girlfriends, but I wouldn’t wish to say ’I am this or I am that’, because at some time in my life I might fall in love with a man." He also expressed that bisexuality is often misunderstood and that people can have meaningful relationships "no matter what sex they are."
