Hans Conried was born in Baltimore, raised both there and in New York City. He studied acting at Columbia University, and played many major classical roles onstage. After having been a member of Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre Company, he was heard as Professor Kropotkin on the radio show "My Friend Irma" and had various roles on the "Edgar Bergen - Charlie McCarthy Show". He was in the original cast of Cole Porter's 1953 Broadway hit "Can-Can" and stayed with the show for more than a year. Known for his sharp wit, Conried was in demand as an actor, panelist and narrator, appearing frequently in television series and movies throughout the 60s and 70s.
- Best known as the voice of Captain Hook in _Peter Pan (1953)_ (qv).
- Known for portrayal of Uncle Tonoose on _"Make Room for Daddy" (1953)_ (qv) (aka "The Danny Thomas Show").
- Stage productions of "Peter Pan" have a tradition of casting the same actor as both Mr. Darling and Captain Hook. Conried played both roles in the animated 'Walt Disney' (qv) adaptation, becoming the first actor to play both roles on film.
- His distinctive voice made him a popular radio performer during the 1930s and 1940s. In the following four decades he had a lucrative second career doing voice work for animated feature films and television productions.
- His father was a Jewish immigrant from Austria and his Connecticut-born mother was descended from Pilgrims.
- Body donated to medical science.
