Biography

Tyrone Edmund Power, Jr., (May 5, 1914 – November 15, 1958) was an American film and stage actor. From 1930s to the 1950s Power appeared in dozens of films, often in swashbuckler roles or romantic leads, known for his striking looks. Power died from a heart attack at the age of 44.

Power was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1914, the only son of Helen Emma "Patia" (née Reaume) and the English-born American stage and screen actor Tyrone Power, Sr., often known by his first name 'Fred'. Power was descended from a long theatrical line going back to his great-grandfather, the actor and comedian, Tyrone Power (1795-1841). His father's ancestry included Irish, English, and Protestant French Huguenots (the latter through his paternal grandmother's Lavenu and Blossett ancestors). His mother was Roman Catholic, and of French Canadian (through the Reaume family) and German (from Alsace-Lorraine) ancestry.[2][3][4] Through his paternal great-grandmother, Anne Gilbert, Power was related to the actor Laurence Olivier; through his paternal grandmother, stage actress Ethel Lavenu, he was related by marriage to author Evelyn Waugh, and through his father's first cousin, Norah Emily Gorman Power, he was related to the theatrical director Sir (William) Tyrone Guthrie, founder of the Stratford Festival (now the Stratford Shakespeare Festival) in Canada and the Tyrone Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

He married French actress Annabella (born Suzanne Georgette Charpentier) on April 23, 1939. They were legally separated in the fall of 1946 and divorced a couple of years later.
