David Hawthorne (22 May 1888 – 18 June 1942) was a British stage and film actor.[1][2] He played the leading man in a number of films during the silent era, but later switched to character roles.[3] One of his more notable roles was that of Rob Roy MacGregor in the 1922 film Rob Roy.[4][5]

His stage work included the original West End productions of Noël Coward's Sirocco in 1927, Somerset Maugham's For Services Rendered in 1932 and J.B. Priestley's Laburnum Grove in 1933, for which he reprised his performance as Inspector Stack in the 1936 film version.[6][7][8][9] A 1937 extract from Busman's Honeymmoon at the Comedy Theatre survives, showing him as a detective interviewing a witness, as filmed for Pathé News.[10]
