Sebastian Cabot Overview:

Character actor, Sebastian Cabot, was born Charles Sebastian Thomas Cabot on Jul 6, 1918 in London, UK. Cabot died at the age of 59 on Aug 22, 1977 in North Saanich, Canada and was laid to rest in Westwood Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, CA.


Beefy, brown-bearded Sebastian Cabot was a British actor who, after years of playing supporting roles in big films and villains in minor ones, went to America and achieved unexpected success and popularity, chiefly on television, playing pompous but lovable characters. He is probably best remembered as butler Mr. French on TV's Family Affair. He also played a leading role (the old Edmund Gwenn part as Kris Kringle) in his last film, a TV version of Miracle on 34th Street.

Sebastian Cabot Quotes:

[Sir Ector and Kay rush down after the Maid to see plates washing by themselves, and brooms and mops sweeping the floor by Merlin's magic while he and Wart have sneaked off]
Sir Ector: [thundering the words] GADZUKES! BLACK MAGIC OF THE WORST KIND!

Narrator: Fortunately, Pooh's thoughtful spot was in a sheltered place. Now he sat down and tried hard to think of something.

Narrator: Owl talked from page 41 to page 62, and on page 62, the blustery day turned into a blustery night. To Pooh, it was an anxious sort of night, filled with anxious sorts of noises. And one of the noises was a sound that had never been heard before.

Was cremated.

After leaving school at age 14 he never had another day of formal education, and later worked as a chef - which helped precipitate his growth to 260 pounds - and spent three years as a professional wrestler in London before World War II, an activity ended by an injury.

When the war ended, he made his London stage debut in 1945, at age 27, in "A Bell for Adano".
