Maurice Evans was a welsh, robust, classical stage actor, raised in London, the son of a justice of the peace.

He wound up performing his craft with the Old Vic Theater Company, before coming to America, becoming a hit on the Broadway stage scene, establishing himself as the most gifted Shakespearean actor (1936-46), and a master of Shavian works as well.
