Biography

Nigel Barrie (5 February 1889, Calcutta, British India – 8 October 1971, England) was an Indian-born British actor.

Biography

Barrie's background as a dancer and actor on legitimate stages and in vaudeville in both Britain and the United States paved the way to early success in silent films. He made screen debut in the 1916 adventure serial Beatrice Fairfax. After playing Marguerite Clark's love interest in the 1917 Babs series, Barrie settled into a long career as a handsome supporting player, sometimes cast as villains with roles varying from boxer to romantic interests. Increasingly dignified in appearance with his natural build and good looks, the 6' 1" actor later played Captain Halliwell in The Little Minister (1921) and was Richard Barthelmess' formidable rival in The Amateur Gentleman. Returning to Britain at the advent of sound, Barrie continued in films until at least 1938.
