Edmund Breon

Edmund Breon (12 December 1882, Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, Scotland – 1951, Scotland) was a Scottish film actor. He appeared in 131 films between 1907 and 1952. Born as Edmund MacLaverty, he began in John Hare's touring company and later played on the West End stage and in Glasgow, gaining prominence. He 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. Breon should not be confused with the French silent film actor Edmond Bréon. Edmund Breon died in his native Scotland in 1951, aged 68, although the date, cause and place are unknown.
