        Edlin is best known for his portrayal of Sir Winston Churchill in the play “Churchill,” which he authored. The most frequent and compelling response from audiences to this one-man play has been “I was inspired.”
        Edlin also offers educational outreach addresses such as “Churchill and Leadership,” keynote speeches, and after-
dinner and corporate programs.
        In 2012, he produced and co-directed his abridgment of Shakespeare’s “King Lear,” in which he played the title role.
        He has performed in more than 30 stage productions, including Erronius in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” Lady Bracknell, in “The Importance of Being Earnest,” Professor Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady, Mr. Bumble in Oliver! and more. His favorite film role is as ‘Big Tony’ McGuffin in the short, “Dick Diamond - Private Eye.”
        Born in Brighton, England, Edlin’s grandfather was the actor Tubby Edlin. He was educated at Cranleigh School, Surrey, and went on to Magdalen College, Oxford University where he received a scholarship in history. He graduated with a degree in psychology and philosophy.
        He moved to the United States in 1990. He has two grown children, and two granddaughters, and lives with his wife, Tena, in Fairfield, Iowa.
