Oliver Coleman as Toby Fedden

Toby Fedden (played by Oliver Coleman)

Handsome and sporty, Toby is refreshingly uncomplicated and open. He is the golden boy upon whom Gerald's hopes are pinned, though he lacks Catherine's quick wit.

Toby is an innocent in the world of the Feddens, and never judges them or anyone else. Even when his parents invite the parents of an ex-girlfriend to stay with them all in France, Toby is quick to brush over any awkwardness. He is a good friend to Nick, and genuinely upset at the end that Nick hasn't been more open with him.

Oliver Coleman

This is one of Oliver's first screen roles, although his CV does also include an appearance in the film Wimbledon*, starring Paul Bettany.

Oliver studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA)*, where he performed in numerous plays including The Seagull, The Merchant of Venice, Kiss Me Kate, and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
