Byrne, Eddie

Eddie Byrne

Eddie Byrne was born on January 31, 1911, in Birmingham, Warwickshire, England, UK.

David Quinlan (historian) once said Eddie, "...seemed to be turning up in every third British film."  In the years between 1954 and 1959, Eddie had parts in 29 films, as well as being a steady player at Dublin's Abbey Theatre. In the mid-60s Byrne returned to his home in Ireland and occasionally made films, including Star Wars in 1977 which was his last film. 

Byrne died on August 21, 1981, in Dublin, Ireland of a stroke.  He was survived by his wife, Kitty Sullivan (who was an actress before she married Byrne in 1974), and four children, Francis, Susan, Michael, and actress Catherine Byrne.
