Republic Pictures contract player GEORGE BYRON

A good-looking general purpose actor, George Byron* earned a Republic Pictures contract from 9-4-1942 to 3-3-1944. Alas, despite his option being picked up at least twice, the studio failed to cast him in anything of importance. Typically, in fact, was his brief appearance as an assistant to the eponymous hero in the opening chapter of CAPTAIN AMERICA.

* A George Byron is listed in the IMDb as hailing from Limerick, Ireland, but if this was the Republic player, he had lost any trace of an Irish accent. The same IMDb page also lists a series of credits for a George Byron 1931-1932. Again, it is doubtful if that is the same performer.
