William Henry Pratt (real name of the actor) was born November 23, 1887 in London, England. He passed away on February 2, 1969 March in 81 years in Midhurst, England.
He was born in a large family, and the ninth, the youngest child of the family. William always felt cared for by older brothers and sisters who took care of his younger brother and helped to complete their studies, especially when my mother died. Before the birth of William’s family lived in India, his father worked in the British customs in India, and maternal grandfather served in the Horse Artillery in Bombay.

He was fond of theater with 9 years, acting in amateur productions. But at first, like brothers, William wanted to be a diplomat. Gradually, acting classes and amateur performances began to substitute for him to study, and to 21 years, Henry has strengthened the idea that wants to do acting and nothing else. At 21, he left Britain, was in Canada, Australia, shooting silent movies playing in theaters. In the 1920s he became one of the founders of the theater in Hobart, Tasmania. Since the beginning of the theatrical career of Henry took the pseudonym Boris Karloff, fearing that his creative attempts may hinder diplomatic career brothers.

So, he became a star of genre cinema. Actor Karloff called disastrous and Master of horror, his voice with records, a person faced with posters and newspaper pages. In addition to the image of the Beast, which he created in the films “Frankenstein” cycle Karloff went into film history as the creator of the image of the vibrant Egyptian magic buried alive and the priest Imhotep in the cult tape Karl Freund’s “The Mummy” (1932).
