Early life

Born in London, England,[1] Hurst studied philology in his youth and began performing in theater in the 1880s.[4]

Before he began acting professionally, Hurst served seven years in the English army, including five years with the King's Dragoon Guards in India.[5]


He worked in Broadway shows from 1900 until his entry into motion pictures. His most notable stage appearance was Two Women in 1910, costarring Mrs. Leslie Carter and Robert Warwick.[6]

He was nearly fifty before his film debut in Via Wireless (1915) as Edward Pinckney. He appeared in 129 other films. He became well known in the 1920s for portraying the antagonist and anti-heroes. Those roles include Sir George Carewe in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920), Jehan Frollo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923), Alexei Karenin opposite Greta Garbo in Love (1927), and Barkilphedro in The Man Who Laughs (1928).

His roles in sound films during the 1920s and 1930s were often small. One of his more important roles was the sinister Merlin the Magician in Fox's A Connecticut Yankee (1931).[citation needed] Hurst worked as an actor until his death, his last film was Two Guys from Texas (1948).
