Mossop, Henry

MOSSOP, HENRY (1729-1774), Irish actor, was born in Dublin, and made his first stage appearance there, at the Smock Alley Theatre, as Zanga in Young's tragedy, The Revenge, in 1749. His first London appearance was made in 1751 under Garrick's management, as Richard III. He returned to Ireland in 1759, and, playing with Barry, added to his laurels, but when he attempted management on his own account, he ruined Barry and went bankrupt himself, dying in poverty on the 27th of December 1774.
