Henry Daniell Overview:

Character actor, Henry Daniell, was born Charles Henry Daniel on Mar 5, 1894 in London, UK. Daniell died at the age of 69 on Oct 31, 1963 in Santa Monica, CA and was laid to rest in Woodlawn Cemetery in Santa Monica, Los Angeles County, CA.


Henry Daniell was a British-born Hollywood actor with a hard, unsmiling face and rat-trap mouth. A villain par excellence, he could also project sympathy in off-beat leading roles. He was probably run through by more swashbuckling stars than any other villain except Basil Rathbone.
