Biography

London, England, UK
Best remembered for the many meek characters he played -- think Cosmo Topper, of the screwball classic ­­Topper (1937) -- this balding, short, yet distinguished actor was born in London, England, to an architect and his wife. Young was educated at Sherborne College and London University and trained as an actor at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
