Wilfred Lucas


B: January 30, 1871 in Norfolk, Ontario
D: December 13, 1940 in Los Angeles, California

Wilfred Lucas had all the charm and bearing of the almost stereotypical young sophisticate at the end of the 1890s. He left Canada to persue an acting career in New York and made his Broadway debut at the Savoy Theater in 1904 appearing in The Superstition of Sue. He was highly successful in the 1906 play, The Chorus Lady and was approached to join D. W. Griffith at the Biograph movie company in 1907. He worked with some of the greatest silent actors of the day including Mary Pickford. He also appeared in Griffith’s monumental and controversial film, Intolerance. Lucas also tried his hand at screenwriting and directing and survived the transition into “talkies” in a career that spanned 32 remarkable years and 375 films.
