Henry Daniell (1894–1963)


London-born Henry Daniell began his career on the British stage, and continued it on the Broadway stage when he emigrated to the US.

Personal Quote:

[In a 1944 interview] I was never a villain until Gerald du Maurier said there was something creepingly sinister about me. I was a good, clean-living boy until then! Of course, it may be that I am really a sinister person and that portraying respectability is really, on my part, a display of virtuosity. I never thought of it that way before.

Trivia:

He was close friends with Krishnamurthy and spent much time with him in Ojai, CA, engaged in spiritual refection--quite contrary to the persona represented by the press. See more »
