Biography:

Quietly spoken, earnest-looking, dark-haired Canadian actor who usually played characters older than his own age. Acted almost exclusively on British stage throughout the thirties, then went to Hollywood and immediately won leading roles, most notably the title role in Wilson, which earned him an Oscar nomination. When his parts grew less interesting, he returned to England, but has since been seen only in supporting role. Also writes novels.
