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.
