Naveen William Sidney Andrews (born 17 January 1969) is a British actor. He is best known for playing Sayid Jarrah on the American television series Lost.

Andrews was born in London, England, the son of Nirmala, a psychologist, and Stanley Andrews, a businessman, both immigrants from Kerala, India. He was brought up in Wandsworth, South London and had what he has described as a "very repressive" upbringing. Andrews was brought up in the Methodist denomination. At the age of sixteen, whilst at Emanuel School, he fell in love with his mathematics teacher, Geraldine Feakins with whom 7 years later he had a son, Jaisal, born in 1992.

Andrews went on and auditioned for drama school. He was accepted at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Ewan McGregor and David Thewlis. His studies paid off when he won a role in Hanif Kureshi's film, London Kills Me (1991). Andrews starred in the 1993 BBC miniseries Buddha of Suburbia. He is best known for his role as Kip in The English Patient (1996) and as Sayid in the popular television series Lost (2004). In 2006, he was voted one of People magazine's World's Most Beautiful People.
