Life and career

Born in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, Breon began in John Hare's touring company and later played on the West End stage and in Glasgow, gaining prominence. According to his grandson, film editor, Breon "started out at the turn of the century doing silent pictures in France. Vampire movies",[1] so it is reasonably certain that MacLaverty is indeed the actor who appeared under the name Edmond Bréon[2] in many Gaumont films 1907-1922 including, most famously, playing the part of Inspector Juve for Louis Feuillade in the ground-breaking Fantômas series. He did also appear in a small part in the 1915-1916 Feuillade series Les vampires although this is not, as his grandson supposes, a horror film. He returned to Britain where he made the film A Little Bit of Fluff (1928) then went to Canada in 1929 and worked on the land. A year later he emigrated to the United States and gained his first big American film part in The Dawn Patrol (1930). Breon appeared in a mixture of British and American films over the following two decades. He also appeared on stage in the West End production of the comedy Spring Meeting in 1938.

A 1949 newspaper article noted that Breon's "career has been interrupted by serious illness and an accident which kept him idle for two years."[3]

His grandson also recalls that he played the role of Dr. Ambrose in Howard HawksThe Thing from Another World (1951).[1]

Breon died in Cork, Ireland, on 24 June 1953.
