Biography

Filmmaker Charles Kent was among Vitagraph's first directors. He primarily made films adapted from literature and occasionally starred in them. He was the first to employ creative close-ups and this caused him to suffer considerable criticism. When not making and acting in his own films, Kent frequently appeared in other films. After 1913, he became a full-time actor.
