André Cheron (August 24, 1880 – January 26, 1952) was a French-born American character actor of the late silent and early sound film eras. During his 16-year career he appeared in over 100 films, usually in smaller roles, although with the occasional featured part.

Life and career

Born André Louis Duval on August 24, 1880, in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, France, Cheron immigrated to the United States where he entered the film industry in 1925 under the stage name André Cheron, which came from his mother's maiden name, Marie Chéron.[1] He made his film debut in Arthur Rosson's silent melodrama, The Fighting Demon, starring Richard Talmadge.[2] Other notable films in which he appeared include: Cecil B. DeMille's silent epic The King of Kings in 1927;[3] Emma (1932), starring Marie Dressler;[4] the 1935 classic version of Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, starring Greta Garbo and Fredric March;[5] the screwball comedy, Wife vs. Secretary (1936), with Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, and Myrna Loy;[6] and Edward H. Griffith's 1937 romantic comedy Café Metropole, starring Loretta Young and Tyrone Power.[7] His final acting role was in a small role in the 1941 Bob Hope comedy, Louisiana Purchase.[8]

Cheron married Charleen Lippincott on February 11, 1931, who was 29 years younger than him.[1] He died on January 26, 1952, at the age of 72 in San Francisco, California.
