Quick Reference

(c.1628–83) English actor. Charles Hart's relationship to William Hart, an actor active with the King's Men in the 1630s, is not clear, but it is clear that neither actor can be associated with the William Hart who was Shakespeare's nephew. As a boy actor Charles played female roles at Blackfriars, but his fame rests on his distinguished Restoration career at Drury Lane under Thomas Killigrew, where he excelled in both tragedy and comedy.
