Victorian and Edwardian Theatre pages about Victorian actors; the Victorian
theatre pages have now been removed from the website for print publication
Mary Elizabeth Braddon and the Victorian Theatre. The G.P. Huntley pages are now linked with the Mary Elizabeth Braddon pages.
In 1891 G.P. Huntley played the role of the lawyer Mr. Sampson in a stage adaptation of the Braddon novel The Cloven Foot. Janette Steer played the lead role.
G.P. Huntley (1866-1927), also known as George Patrick Huntley, was the son of English actor parents, and was born in Ireland when his mother and father (a great-great-great-great uncle of mine) were touring with their theatre company. Huntley was a stage name. They moved back to London when G.P. was a child. He was the second cousin once removed of stage and film actress Kathleen Harrison. The Huntleys feature in a new Theatre History book to be published by The Sensation Press.
