notice how many people in this list are 'Sir's' that he has trainedBorn Sept. 15, 1922, in Gosport, Hampshire, England, Anderson served with the British Royal Marines during World War II. He was on board the HMS Coventry in the Mediterranean when it was bombed, and he spent eight hours adrift before being rescued.
Anderson, who learned to fence while in the military, became a fencing champion in England after the war and represented Britain at the 1950 and 1953 world championships, as well as the 1952 Olympics.
Errol Flynn was already an experienced movie swordsman when Anderson coached him for "The Master of Ballantrae." The legendary actor was so impressed with Anderson that he insisted that he rejoin the production after the Olympics ended.
Anderson also doubled for David Prowse as Darth Vader during lightsaber duels in two "Star Wars" films — "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi."Ten days before Bob Anderson headed to the 1952 Olympic Games in Helsinki as part of the British fencing team, he responded to a call from a British film studio in need of three fencers to coach the lead actors for sword-fighting scenes in a new pirate movie.
The movie was "The Master of Ballantrae," starring veteran Hollywood swashbuckler Errol Flynn.
Over the decades, Anderson was the go-to sword master for films such as "Barry Lyndon," "Highlander," "The Princess Bride," "The Three Musketeers," "First Knight," "The Mask of Zorro," "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" and "The Lord of the Rings" films.
Among his famous pupils were Sean Connery, David Niven, Charlton Heston, Peter O'Toole, Roger Moore, Michael Caine, Mandy Patinkin, Richard Gere, Liv Tyler, Antonio Banderas, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins.
