Naunton Wayne

Naunton Wayne (1901-1970) was a British character actor, born in south Wales. He became best known for his role as a comic minor character, Caldicott, in the 1938 film version of The Lady Vanishes, a role he repeated in three further films, alongside Basil Radford as his equally cricket-obsessed friend, Charters.

He went on to appear in some of the Ealing comedies, such as Passport to Pimlico and The Titfield Thunderbolt.
