Andrea Prodan (born 16 November 1961) Scottish-Italian film actor, composer and musician is the younger brother of Argentine rock star Luca Prodan. The Prodan family, after suffering internment in a Japanese concentration camp during WW II, was expelled from China due to Mao. Andrea's Italian father was an author and talented sportsman, and had run a prosperous business, with expertise in ancient Chinese pottery. His mother is Scottish.
The family moved to Rome and Tuscany in 1948 where Andrea spent his early years. He was educated in England, and aged 12, became head chorister at The King's School, Canterbury. As solo voice he recorded "A Song for All Seasons". He started in films as a sound assistant on Krull and also on The Vatican Story, with Gregory Peck.
In 1983, he dropped out of Exeter University to join his elder sister Michela on the set of Italian International Films production in Monastir, Tunisia, producing with NBC a sequel to Franco Zeffirelli's Jesus of Nazareth. A.D., an NBC miniseries, the story of the Acts of the Apostles was directed by Stuart Cooper. Andrea Prodan became (for two years), the assistant operator and interpreter for the Italian director of photography, Ennio Guarnieri. A.D. stars included Ava Gardner, James Mason, Denis Quilley and Fernando Rey. He played alongside Ava Gardner as "Britannicus". During that time he filmed a short film, in the Sahara, which won an ICA prize in 1984.
