Roland Culver OBE (21 August 1900, Highgate, London, England – 1 March 1984 Henley-on-Thames, England) was a British stage, film, and television actor. After Highgate College, he joined the Royal Air Force and served as a pilot from 1918 to 1919. After considering other careers, he turned to acting, graduating from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. He debuted on the stage in 1924 at Hull Repertory Theatre and, by 1931, was appearing in films in which he was known for his portrayals of impeccable English gentlemen not given to displays of emotion. In the 1960s, he branched out into television before finally retiring in 1982. In 1960 he appeared in "Five Finger Exercise" at the Music Box Theatre in New York City. He was nominated for the 1966 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play for Ivanov. He was married twice, first to actress, director and casting agent Daphne Rye between 1932 and 1946, then to Nan Hopkins from 1947 until his death of a heart attack in 1984. He had two children with his first wife, actor Michael Culver and Robin Culver.
