Errol Leslie Thomson Flynn[1] (20 June 1909 – 14 October 1959)[1] was an Australian-American actor.[2] He was known for his romantic swashbuckler roles in Hollywood films.


Errol Leslie Thomson Flynn was born on June 20, 1909 in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. In 1932 he played the part of Fletcher Christian in the film In the Wake of the Bounty.

In 1933 he went to England where he acted with the Northampton Repertory Company until signing a contract with Warner Brothers. After Murder at Monte Carlo, he moved to California, where he shot to stardom in 1935 as the swashbuckling hero in Captain Blood.
