Sir Seymour Hicks
Did You Know?
Hicks first performed the role of Ebenezer Scrooge on the London stage in 1901, at the age of thirty. He received very mixed reviews and was criticized for not being able to portray old age convincingly enough, something he eventually mastered. According to one source, he had played the role onstage more than 2,000 times by the time he first appeared as Scrooge on the screen (in 1913).
