Biography by Hal Erickson

Even when he wasn't dressed in period costume or contemporary cutaway and ascot, British actor Lawrence Hanray exuded dignity and breeding. In films from 1932's Wedding Rehearsal, Hanray was especially busy in producer Alexander Korda's lavish historic dramas. He was seen as Archbishop Cranmer in Private Life of Henry VIII (1933) and essayed equally prominent roles in Catherine the Great (1934), Rembrandt (1936), and several other Korda productions. Lawrence Hanray remained active well into the WW II years, when he was well into his seventies.
