Southwell, England, UK
Sebastian Smith from Southwell, Nottinghamshire, became a well-known star of many comedy and drama shows all over Britain in the late Victorian years before meeting pioneering film-maker Cecil Hepworth. Hepworth cast the handsome tall dark Smith in many of his films, often as a smart gentleman hero, in such titles as 'Rescued by Rover'. In his later years, Smith became quite fat and bald, allowing him to take on comedy roles in films such as 'Oh Mr. Porter' with Will Hay. He died in 1948 at the age of 78. Read more...
