Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Slight, mild-mannered British character actor who played a host of lower-middle-class types, from the unctuous Uriah Heep in "David Copperfield" (1934) to the meek sales clerk invested with God-like powers in "The Man Who Could Work Miracles" (1936). His amiable diffidence enabled him to blithely play frustrated upper class types on occasion; Young is, for example, best known to American audiences for his starring roles as the worrisome banker in three of the "Topper" films (1937-41).
