Historical character

Portrayal

Victor Garber

Thomas Andrews Jr. was an Irish employee for Harland and Wolff who designed and helped build the RMS Titanic. He was very kind-hearted. Andrews was one of the first people certain that the Titanic would, indeed, sink before it became obvious. He was very protective of Rose DeWitt Bukater and found her trustworthy, being that he told her that the Titanic would sink and told no one else (although her fiancee, Caledon Hockley, had heard this as well). He was also friendly to Rose's friend/true love Jack Dawson and was seen saying "Hi" to him a few times despite this being uncommon in first class passengers to converse with third class passenger. He was portrayed by Victor Garber.

Character HistoryEdit

Life on TitanicEdit

Thomas Andrews was one of the nine-man guarantee group to be on board to oversee the maiden voyage of the Titanic.

DeathEdit

Andrews was last seen standing in the first–class smoking room staring at a painting, "Plymouth Harbour", above the fireplace, his life jacket lying on a nearby table (in the movie he gave the life jacket to Rose in hopes that she would survive, as well as he express to her his regrets and seeks her apology, and they embrace, as a final farewell). The painting depicted the entrance to where the Titanic expected to visit on her return voyage.

The painting is often incorrectly shown on television and in movies as depicting the entrance to New York.

While the musicians performed Nearer God To Thee, Andrews was carefully correcting the clock on the mantle. Andrews died when the ship split and destroyed the smoking room.
