  Summary  

Raymond Huntley (23 April 1904 – 19 October 1990) was an English actor who appeared in dozens of British films from the 1930s through to the 1970s. Huntley also appeared in the ITV period drama Upstairs, Downstairs as the pragmatic family solicitor Sir Geoffrey Dillon.

  Biography  

 life and career
Born in Birmingham in 1904, Huntley was often cast as a supercilious bureaucrat or other authority figure, and his many film appearances included The Way Ahead, I See a Dark Stranger, Passport to Pimlico and The Dam Busters.

Huntley has been credited as the first actor to portray Count Dracula, but that is incorrect. Huntley was first to play the role in Hamilton Deane's stage adaptation, later revised by John L. Balderston and now the most successful stage version of Bram Stoker's novel. The very first stage performance of Dracula occurred in 1897, shortly after the novel was published; Stoker himself mounted a one-off dramatization of the novel at Sir Henry Irving's Lyceum Theatre in London, where Stoker was manager.

In Huntley's later years, he became well known on television as Sir Geoffrey Dillon, the family solicitor to the Bellamys in LWT's popular 1970s drama series Upstairs, Downstairs.

Huntley died in the Westminster Hospital, London in 1990
