Of all the British film greats to emerge from the late 1930s, none made such a lasting impact on the costume drama, epic adventure or melodramatic tear-jerker than Stewart Granger.
Acting was in the family�s heritage--Granger�s grandfather was the celebrated stage tragedian Luigi Leblanche. It was prophetic that he would inherit his grandfather�s dashing good looks, confident acting style and name.
Born James Leblanche Stewart in London on 6th May 1913, his first professional ambition was a career in medicine but hastily decided it wasn�t the life for him and left before completing his preparatory studies. Bewitched by tales of his famous relation, he decided to cement a blossoming interest in acting.
