Stephen Kemble

Stephen Kemble (1758-1822) was a British actor, a member of the famous Kemble family.

He was the second son of Roger Kemble, brother of Charles Kemble and John Philip Kemble, and of Sarah Siddons.

His success as an actor was less than that of his brothers and sister, and he was eclipsed by his wife and fellow player, Elizabeth Satchell Kemble. His physical size enabled him to play the role of Falstaff without padding. He also managed theatres in Edinburgh and elsewhere.
