Producer and Writer
George Edwards was an Australian actor and producer. Edwards was a pioneer of the radio serial in Australia. Prior to that he was a comedian, vaudeville artist, acrobatic dancer and stage performer. It is claimed that he changed his name from Harold Parks to George Edwards at the behest of Edward Branscombe, who was putting together an up-market act and did not want anyone associated with low-brow music hall, and that he took the name from English theatrical impresario George Edwards. He performed in a radio drama adaption of Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Edwards' first wife was Margaret Rose Wilson, whom he married on 6 August 1907. They had a daughter. On 9 May 1925, he married Molly D Hughes in Sydney, and in 1929 was a featured entertainer on the Sydney Show Boat. Apparently she died. His third wife was Helen Dorothy Malmgrom, who had worked with him on the Sydney Showboat. She changed her name to Nell Stirling. They were married in Haberfield on 29 March 1934. Together they appeared in many live radio productions, including the long-running "Dad and Dave from Snake Gully" series in which Edwards played Dad Rudd, and Stirling played Mabel. Sumner Locke Elliott wrote a number of radio plays for Edward's company.
