Claude Rains

Claude Rains (November 10, 1889 Camberwell-May 30, 1967 Laconia) a.k.a. William Claude Rains or 'Willy Wains' was an English actor. He had one child, Jessica Rains.

Rains began his career on stage and made his screen debut in the 1930 film "Sweet Adeline". He went on to star in several classic Hollywood films, including "The Invisible Man", "Casablanca", and "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington". Despite being known for his distinctive voice, Rains was initially hesitant to pursue acting due to a speech impediment. He overcame this difficulty through therapy and developed a commanding, distinctive speaking style that helped him become one of the most respected actors of his time. In addition to his work in film, Rains also made regular appearances on radio and television. He received four Academy Award nominations during his career, but never won. Rains died on May 30, 1967, at the age of 77 due to an abdominal hemorrhage.

Rains' career spanned over three decades, during which he worked alongside some of the biggest names in Hollywood. He was highly regarded for his versatility and ability to play a wide range of characters, from sympathetic protagonists to conniving villains. His portrayal of Captain Louis Renault in "Casablanca" is considered one of his most iconic roles.

Outside of acting, Rains was known for his love of painting and could often be found working on his art in his spare time. He was a member of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 1959 for his contributions to the arts.

Even after his death, Rains' legacy has lived on, with his films remaining popular among audiences and his distinct voice inspiring countless imitations and parodies. He was posthumously awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960, cementing his status as one of the greats of the silver screen.
