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 King Stefan as his final film role in the 1959 Disney animated feature film, Sleeping Beauty, where he replaced Hans Conried, who was the live action model for the character and probably recorded some voice lines as the herald in the same film.

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.
