Henry Vibart (25 December 1863 – 1944) was a Scottish stage and film actor, active from the 1880s until the early 1930s. He appeared in many theatrical roles in the UK and overseas, and featured in over 70 films of the silent era.

Career

Vibart's prolific stage career began in 1886. Over the decades worked alongside some of the biggest names of British theatre, and toured extensively in the United States, Australia and New Zealand. Vibart gained a reputation as an exceptionally reliable actor, and it was noted on the occasion of his 10,000th stage appearance in 1923 that he had never once in his career missed a rehearsal or performance through illness or lack of dedication.

Vibart made his screen debut in 1911, and would appear in dozens of films over the next 20 years. His film appearances were usually in supporting character roles to the younger major cinema stars of the day. From the mid 1910s he became a regular member of the Cecil Hepworth stock company, featuring in many films directed by Hepworth and Henry Edwards until the collapse of the Hepworth studio in 1924. The end of his screen career coincided with the demise of silent films. He made only two sound films before retiring in 1931.

Vibart died in 1944 (exact date unknown), aged 75.
