Taylor Holmes was an American actor, who appeared in over 100 Broadway plays in his five-decade career. He was best known for his screen performances, which he began in silent films in 1917.

For Disney, he voiced a doctor in Lady and the Tramp and did his final film role as King Stefan in the final cut of Sleeping Beauty.

Early life and career[]

Born in Newark, New Jersey, Taylor Holmes made his Broadway debut in February 1900 in the controversial play "Sapho", which was closed down by the New York Police Department for immorality after 29 performances. In the April 1900 trial, the play was adjudged not obscene, and it reopened and ran for an additional 55 performances. Holmes would go on to appear in 36 other Broadway productions over the next 46 years. From 1917 through 1959, he appeared in scores of films and television shows, being employed mainly by TV in the 1950s and being the voice of King Stefan in the final cut of Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty as his last film role, in which he actually replaced Hans Conried, who still remained the model reference for the character.
