(1912–98), British actor. Stylish and intellectual, he was as much at home acting in French and German as in English. He toured Europe with the Compagnie des Quinze. At the Old Vic in 1940 he co-directed John Gielgud in The Tempest and played Ariel. At Stratford-upon-Avon he played Richard III and Octavius Caesar in 1953, returning in 1962 as a self-flagellating Angelo.
