From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Lewis Waller (1860 - 1915), English actor, was born in Spain, his father being a civil engineer.

He first appeared on the London stage in 1883, at Tooles, and for some years added to his reputation as a capable actor in London and the provinces. He came more particularly to the front by a fine performance as Buckingham in The Three Musketeers under Mr Beerbohm Tree's management at His Majesty's in 1895, and soon afterwards organized a company of his own, first at the Haymarket and afterwards at the Shaftesbury, Imperial, Apollo and other theatres.

His fine voice and vigorous acting were well suited in his memorable production of Henry V, and he had a great success with Monsieur Beaucaire and similar plays. His wife, Mrs Lewis Waller (Florence West), also became well known as a powerful and accomplished actress.
