Coghlan, Charles


Coghlan, Charles
(1842-1899)
   Born in Paris, France, Coghlan began his acting career in his native England and in 1876, followed his sister Rose Coghlan to New York. He had a polished manner that worked well in society comedies like Edward Bulwer-Lytton's Money. His strong dramatic roles included the title character in Jim, the Penman. Critic Austin Latchaw (Kansas City Star, 16 April 1935) noted that although Coghlan was "one of the very finest actors of his period, he was so irresponsible in his personal affairs that he was a constant worry to his managers." Stricken ill during a tour, he died in Galveston, Texas.
