Footnotes

  • Sir Henry Irving (1838–1905) was an English stage actor. In 1895 he became the first actor to be awarded a knighthood, and is thought to be the inspiration behind Dracula, when Bram Stoker was working with him in the 1880s.

    Thomas Meller was the husband of Elizabeth Meller, a good friend of Irving.
