Subject: 	Question on Performance of Hamlet

I'd read a few years ago about a 19th century actor who appeared quite 
mentally unstable but still played Hamlet in the theater.  It was the 
only role he would play and apparently did a credible performance 
because he continued to get booked and play the part for years.

I wanted to find out more information on him, but now I am unable to 
find my source on him.

Does anyone know the name of this actor?

Thanks,
Mark Alcamo
Bremerton, WA.
