George Henry Sanders, nado en San Petersburgo o 3 de xullo de 1906 e finado en Castelldefels (Barcelona o 25 de abril de 1972 foi un actor e músico británico.

Traxectoria[editar | editar a fonte]

Nado no Imperio Ruso de pais ingleses, regresaron ao seu país tralo triunfo da Revolución Rusa. Tras graduarse traballou nunha axencia de publicidade, onda a secretaria e entón aspirante a actriz Greer Garson lle suxeriu que intentase ser actor. Debutou no cinema británico en 1929 e sete anos máis tarde participou no seu primeiro filme estadounidense.

O seu forte acento inglés levouno a participar en numerosos filmes nas décadas seguintes. En 1950 gañou o Oscar ao mellor actor de reparto en 1950 polo seu papel do crítico teatral Addison DeWitt en All About Eve.

Desde 1957 participou en series de televisión como The Man From U.N.C.L.E. ou Batman e puxo a voz a Shere Khan na produción de Disney The Jungle Book.

Tralo seu matrimonio con Magda Gabor (irmá maior da súa segunda esposa Zsa Zsa Gabor) comezou a beber e nos seguintes anos a súa saúde empeorou caendo na demencia. En 1972 alugou un cuarto nun hotel de Castelldefels onde foi atopado morto dous días despois, vítima dun ataque ao corazón provocado tras tomar cinco botes de Nembutal. O seu pasamento foi considerado un suicidio, xa que deixou unha nota que dicía:

Dear World, I am leaving because I am bored. I feel I have lived long enough. I am leaving you with your worries in this sweet cesspool. Good luck. (Querido Mundo, marcho porque estou aburrido. Sinto que vivín abondo. Déixote coas túas preocupacións nesta doce fosa. Boa sorte.)
