Biography

Portmadoc, North Wales, UK
Rotund, cherubic-looking Welsh-born character actor, graduate of Oxford University. Hughes looked every inch the Marlborough House schoolmaster he was earlier in life, prior to embarking upon a theatrical career in 1910. Tailor-made for Dickensian impersonations, he was spot-on casting as Tim Linkinwater, partner and clerk for the Cheeryble Twins (one of whom he also played for a 1957 BBC TV serialisation), in The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby (1947).
