Bellew, Kyrle


Bellew, Kyrle
(1855-1911)
   Harold Kyrle Bellew, son of a clergyman, acted in his native England, served in the Royal Navy, and made a fortune at gold mining in Australia before launching his American stage career in 1901. He performed opposite Eleanor Robson in A Gentleman of France in 1901, Romeo and Juliet in 1903, and She Stoops to Conquer in 1905. His attractive stage presence was well suited to costume dramas, including swashbucklers, but his major roles also included suave contemporaries like the title characters in Raffles (1903) and The Thief (1907).
