George Fawcett (August 25, 1860 – June 6, 1939) was an American stage and film actor of the silent era.


Born in Alexandria, Virginia, in 1860, Fawcett graduated from the University of Virginia.[1] His initial inclination was to be an attorney, but he became a Shakespearean actor instead.[2]

Fawcett had his own acting troupe, the Fawcett Stock Company.[3] He appeared on stage in such plays as Ghosts (1905) with Mary Shaw, The Squaw Man (1905) with William Faversham, The Great John Ganton (1909) with an up-and-coming actress Laurette Taylor in the cast, and Getting a Polish (1910) with actress May Irwin.

Fawcett's film debut came in 1915[2] in The Majesty of the Law,[4] and he appeared in 151 films between 1915 and 1933.[citation needed] He also directed films.[2] He returned to the stage in 1930 in a production of The Great John Ganton at the Vine Theater in Los Angeles.[5]

Fawcett married actress Percy Haswell, and they had one daughter.[6] Fawcett died in Nantucket, Massachusetts in 1939.
