Albert Cavens (1 October 1906 – 17 December 1985) was a Belgian-born American silent film child actor.

Biography[edit]

Cavens moved to the United States soon after birth and began his career only aged 8 in a number of films in 1914, including The Town of Nazareth, also starring Charlotte Burton. However, after 1914, Cavens took a break from acting. He returned to it as an adult over thirty years later, playing Valvert, the nobleman whom Cyrano duels with while reciting a poem, in Cyrano de Bergerac (1950). (Cavens was the son of Fred Cavens, a fencing instructor in Hollywood). Between 1950 and 1969, he made a number of appearances in film and television, and appeared in Star Trek in 1969 shortly before his retirement.
