  • A former civil engineer, Charles Carson established himself on the London stage of the 1920s as a superlative Shakespearean actor. In films from 1932, Carson seemed most at home in costume roles, appearing in such historical dramas as Fire Over England (1937), Victoria the Great (1937) and 60 Glorious Years (1939). He also flourished in contemporary roles such as "R" in Hitchcock's Secret Agent (1936), and on at least one occasion leaped some 100 years into the future, as the Great Grandfather in Things to Come (1936). During the war years, he directed at starred in ENSA productions on behalf of the British military troops, then settled into a long second career of playing distinguished elders. Charles Carson made his farewell film appearance in still another historical epic, Lady Caroline Lamb (1972).
