Leo White (born Leo Weiss) grew up in England and began his stage career there. In 1910 he came to the United States and the following year started working in Silent films. Typically cast as a dapper continental villain or a nobleman, White frequently played uncredited bit parts and as a character actor in many Charlie Chaplin productions. Multiple online sites indicate that he was born in 1882. However his grave marker clearly presents birth year as having been 1873.
