"I learned two things at drama school: first, that I couldn't act; second, that it didn't matter."

Wilfrid Hyde-White, (12 May 1903 — 6 May 1991), was a British character actor.

His first on-stage appearance was in Tons of Money in 1922. He first appeared in the West End three years later in Beggar on Horseback.

He was a fixture in British films of The '50s, while also keeping up his stage appearances. He made his first Hollywood appearance alongside Marilyn Monroe in Let's Make Love, followed by other films, most notably My Fair Lady.

He died of heart failure, only 6 days away from his 88th birthday. His son is American actor Alex Hyde-White.
