Paul Cavanagh

1888 - 1964

Der Schauspieler Paul Cavanagh studierte vor seiner Laufbahn beim Film Recht an der Universität von Cambridge und arbeitete danach als Advokat. Später ging er nach Kanada, wo er bei den Royal Canadian Mounties tätig war.

Schliesslich kehrte er nach England zurück, wo er zunächst als Advokat weiterarbeitete, ehe er durch unglückliche Umstände seine Ersparnisse verlor.

Daraufhin entschied er sich 1924, einen völlig neuen Weg zu gehen und Schauspieler zu werden. In den nächsten Jahren konnte er in vielen Theaterstücken mitwirken, u.a. am Broadway in "Scotland Yard" (29).
