Charles Henry Daniell (5 March 1894 – 31 October 1963) was an English actor, best known for his villainous film roles, but who had a long and prestigious career on stage as well as in films.
Daniell was given few opportunities to play a 'good guy', one of the few being the biographical film Song of Love (1947) where he played the supporting part of Franz Liszt. Another such opportunity was his role as Anthony Lloyd in Voice of Terror.
He married Ann Knox, and in the years following the Second World War lived in Los Angeles, California.
He and Ann were involved in a Hollywood sex scandal in the late 1930s. Visiting author P.G. Wodehouse wrote to his stepdaughter Leonora about the couple:
Apparently they go down to Los Angeles and either (a) indulge in or (b) witness orgies – probably both … there’s something pleasantly domestic about a husband and wife sitting side by side with their eyes glued to peepholes, watching the baser elements whoop it up. And what I want to know is – where are these orgies? I feel I’ve been missing something.
