Frank Currier (September 4, 1857 – April 22, 1928) was an American film and stage actor and director of the silent era.[1]


Similar to Theodore Roberts, Kate Lester, Ida Waterman, and William H. Crane, Currier had a long and successful stage career in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. His youth was spent honing his stagecraft. By the time he started appearing in silent films he was in his 50s and middle-aged. Currier, like Roberts, had a distinctive grandfatherly look as he aged and was respected and beloved by film audiences.

Currier appeared in more than 130 films between 1912 and 1928. He also directed 19 films in 1916. He is memorable in the 1925 film Ben-Hur as the Roman Admiral who adopts Judah Ben-Hur (Ramon Novarro) as his son after Ben-Hur saves his life during a battle at sea.

On Broadway, Currier performed in The Poor Little Rich Girl (1913), An Old New Yorker (1911), The Aviator (1910), Beethoven (1910), The Gay Life (1909), This Woman and This Man (1909), Way Down East (1905), The Winter's Tale (1904), Twelfth Night (1904), and Quo Vadis (1900).[2]
