Hilton Edwards

Hilton Edwards (February 2, 1903 – November 18, 1982), was an Irish actor and theatrical producer.

Edwards was born in London. He appeared in 15 films, including "Captain Lightfoot" (1955), "David and Goliath" (1960), "Victim" (1961) and "Half a Sixpence" (1967). He also wrote and directed Orson Welles' "Return to Glennascaul" (1951). However, he was primarily known for his theater work; he was nominated for a Tony Award in 1966 for Best Director of a Drama for "Philadelphia, Here I Come!"

Along with his partner/lover, Micheál MacLiammóir, Edwards co-founded the Gate Theatre in Dublin. In 1961, he became the first Head of Drama at Telefís Éireann and, a year later, he won a Jacob's Award for his television series, "Self Portrait." ["The Irish Times", "BBC wins award for Hancock series in first T.E. critic's selection", December 5, 1962]

Edwards and MacLiammoir were the subject of a biography, titled "The Boys" by Christophor Fitz-Simon. Hilton Edwards died in Dublin, Ireland.
