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.
