George Relph, CBE (27 January 1888 – 24 April 1960) was an English actor.[1] He acted in more than a dozen films,[1] and also many plays.[2][3] He served in the British Armed Forces in the First World War, and was shot in the leg, hindering his return to acting. But Relph eventually got back on stage, and his career continued.[2] His son, Michael, became a producer in the British film industry.[4] His last role was Tiberius in the 1959 film version of Ben Hur which was released five months before Relph's death.
