~Biography~
British-born Nigel De Brulier's long career began in silent films, but unlike many performers of that
era, he managed to successfully transition into sound films. His authoritarian and somewhat regal
bearing was perfect for the many bishops, cardinals, knights and other authority figures he often
played (he portrayed Cardinal Richelieu four times: in The Three Musketeers (1921), The Three
Musketeers (1935), The Iron Mask (1929) and The Man in the Iron Mask (1939)).
