Biography

Canadian actor Matheson Lang first gained considerable renown in British theater before turning to silent films in 1916. He was one of the first major theater stars to do so, and he continued starring in British films through the mid 1930s. The son of a clergyman and the cousin of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Lang's decision to forgo religious life in favor of acting caused considerable controversy in his family. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
