Biography

Herbert Halliwell Hobbes (16 November 1877 – 20 February 1962) was an English actor.

Career

Hobbes's stage debut was as a member of Frank Benson's company, in the role of Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet in 1898, playing in Shakespearean rep alongside actors such as Ellen Terry and Mrs Patrick Campbell. His earliest American work was as an actor and director from 1906, before moving to Hollywood in early 1929 (aged 51) to play older men's roles such as clerics, butlers, doctors, lords and diplomats. He remained a British subject throughout his life.Receiving fewer film roles during the 1940s (though he still managed to have been in over 100 films by 1949), he moved back to Broadway by the mid-1940s, appearing in Romeo and Juliet as Lord Capulet and continuing there until late 1955. By 1950 he had moved to American television in the diverse playhouse format. A heart ailment caused Hobbes to retire in 1956.

Personal Life

In 1915, Hobbes married Nancie Brenda Marsland, an actress. They had one son. He increased the sunkenness of his cheeks by having his four 12-year-molars removed.
