Ed Wynn was an American actor.

BiographyEdit

Born Isaiah Edwin Leopold in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he ran away from home and; after a brief period of odd-jobbing, became a vaudevillian. With the advent of radio comedy in the 1930s, Wynn became the host of a show entitled The Fire Chief, and later became the host of one of the first variety TV shows in 1949.

Upon the encouragement of his son Keenan, he later became a succesful serious actor, despite initial concerns, and was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in The Diary of Anne Frank. Wynn was also fondly remembered for his roles in association with Disney, such as Uncle Albert in Mary Poppins.

Wynn passed away in 1966.
