‘Hey I want to thank all the young people who are helping Kathryn and me to TikTok,’ Mandy rather breathlessly said. ‘Listen, if you’re too young to vote, you can still help by getting your parents, your grandparents, your uncles, your aunts, your friends, anyone who’s old enough to vote to vote.
‘If it’s your first time voting, make sure you register correctly otherwise your vote won’t count. Gotta get Biden/Harris in the White House, blue up and down the ballot. Good luck to you, it makes a world of difference!’
Throughout his speech, Kathryn nodded her head in agreement.
Then, Mandy broke out into an enthusiastic twerk.

After a lifetime of being apolitical, Mandy was inspired to change course after marrying his wife Kathryn.
‘Early on, when Kathryn and her friends would talk politics, I would politely listen and consider it something of an intellectual indulgence,’ he wrote. ‘Then, one day, her friend Martin Sheen turned and asked my opinion. I responded with my typical line, “Oh, I’m not really political.” Martin smiled and replied, “Do you breathe?”
‘He and Kathryn, and others like them, gently and patiently illuminated for me how every decision we make, every privilege we hold, every hardship we encounter, every service we partake in, every person we meet – literally everything we do is political.
‘This realization is what has given my life meaning.’
Mandy is perhaps best known for his roles in the hit Showtime series Homeland and the beloved cult classic, Princess Bride, where he played the beloved fencer Inigo Montoya.
