Biography

Born on October 1, 1896, in Rangoon, Burma, to Burmese-Jewish parents, distinguished veteran character actor Abraham Sofaer was a one-time schoolteacher in both Rangoon and London. He switched gears to acting after a short time and made his stage debut as a walk-on in William Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice" in 1921. He made his first London appearance with "The Green Goddess" in 1925 and, from the 1930s on, alternated between the London and Broadway stages playing an assortment of Shakespearean roles (Othello, Lear, Cassius, etc.) among other classic plays.
