Biography

Wandsworth, London, England, UK
There are very few character actors from the 1930s, '40s or '50s who rose to the rank of stardom. Only a rare man or woman reached the level of renown and admiration, and had enough audience appeal, to be the first name in a cast's billing, a name that got marquee posting. Charles Coburn comes to mind, but there aren't many others. However, one who made it was Edmund Gwenn.

Gwenn was born Edmund Kellaway in Wandsworth, London, on September 26, 1877. Read more...
