Did You Know?


RADA-trained British character actor, who abandoned a military career in favour of the theatre by the age of 27. He acted on screen from 1919. His lean, tall figure, combined with his receding hairline and serious demeanour, made it somewhat inevitable that he was typically cast as academics, haughty officers or clergymen. He often billed himself as 'P. Kynaston Reeves' (the 'P' stood for Philip).
