Henry Victor (2 October 1892 - 15 March 1945) was an English-born character actor. Raised in Germany, Victor is probably best remembered for his portrayal of the strongman Hercules in Tod Browning's 1932 film Freaks. He originally was a leading figure in UK silent films. Later in his career, he mostly portrayed villains or Nazis in both American and British films with his trademark German accent. He died at 52 of a brain tumor. He is buried in Chatsworth, California at the Oakwood Memorial Park Cemetery.
