Cecil "Cec" Yates is a recurring character of both novels and TV show Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. He's portrayed by the actor Anthony Sharpe.
Cecil "Cec" Yates is younger than Bert and more cosmopolitan than his older cohort, having seen more of the world in his previous life as a sailor. A man of far fewer words than Bert, Cec often keeps things to himself, but he would be lost without Bert. Cec is a keen observer, with a near photographic memory and he has a soft spot for stray animals and fallen women.
Cec is a well built, blue eyed, dark haired man who is a little soft around the edges and would do anything to keep the people he loves safe; especially Bert.
Cec is a supporter of the West Melbourne football club.
Throughout the series
Anthony Sharpe is an accomplished singer. The cut of Murder Under The Mistletoe, however, makes it seem like he can't stay in tune (presumably due to different takes being used).
