Biography

Stocky, sandy-haired Scottish actor Russell Waters generally found himself in mild-mannered roles. In the manner of Dave O'Brien, star of Hollywood's Pete Smith Specialties, Waters achieved instant audience recognition as the leading man in Richard Massingham's amusing instructional short subjects, among them Tell Me If It Hurts (1936), And So to Work (1937), The Daily Round (1947) and What a Life (1948). In feature films, Waters played such secondary roles as Craggs in The Blue Lagoon (1949), Mr. West in Happiest Days of Your Life (1950) and "Wings" Cameron in The Wooden Horse (1950). Russell Waters remained in films at least until 1974, when he was seen briefly as the Harbourmaster in The Wicker Man.
