Crossword Genius

Actor in a rumpled mac (8)


I believe the answer is:


'mac' is the definition.
(macintosh is a type of raincoat)

'actor in a rumpled' is the wordplay.
'rumpled' indicates an anagram.
'actorina' anagrammed gives 'RAINCOAT'.

(Other definitions for raincoat that I've seen before include "Mackintosh" , "Catriona (anag.)" , "Protective garment for Croatian" , "Wet weather wear" , "protection against the elements" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
