Nicholas Joy - Rotten Tomatoes

Nicholas Joy



Coming to films late in life, towering supporting player Nicholas Joy had studied at London's Royal Academy prior to making his stage debut in 1910. French-born of British parentage, Joy quickly became a popular character actor on both sides of the Atlantic, having made an auspicious Broadway debut in Henry V in 1912. Onscreen from 1947, Joy usually played pompous characters and is perhaps best remembered as the archbishop in Joan of Arc (1948) and as the renowned defense lawyer-turned-murder victim in Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer (1949). Joy, who also played Lynn Bari's father in the short-lived 1952 television situation comedy Boss Lady, retired in the late '50s.
