Breese was born in Brooklyn, New York. His parents were Renshaw Breese and Josephine Busby.[2]

The Opera House in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, was the site of Breese's stage debut in the summer of 1895. He portrayed Adonis Evergreen in My Awful Dad.[2]

Long on the stage with a varied Broadway career before entering films, Breese appeared with James O'Neill in The Count of Monte Cristo (1893), The Lion and the Mouse (1906) with Richard Bennett, The Third Degree (1909) with Helen Ware, The Master Mind (1913) with Elliott Dexter, the popular World War I era play Why Marry?

His final role was on stage in Night of January 16th from September 1935 to April 1936. Just before the play ended its run, Breese developed peritonitis, from which he died on April 6, 1936[5] at the Hospital for the Ruptured and Crippled.[2] Funeral services were at the Church of the Transfiguration in New York City on April 8, 1936, after which his body was cremated.[6]
