Encyclopedia > Leading man

Leading man or leading gentleman is an informal term for the actor who plays a secondary lead or supporting role, usually a love interest, to the leading actress in a film or play. It is not usually applied to the leading actor in the performance if that actor is the protagonist.


A leading man is also an actor who is typecast in romantic roles. Less frequently, the epithet has been applied to an actor who is often associated with one particular actress, for example, Errol Flynn was Olivia de Havilland's leading man in several films, Spencer Tracy had a similar association with Katherine Hepburn; used in this sense, however, the woman is usually described as the leading lady of the man.


The term is also used collectively, as in 'Hollywood's leading men' to refer to a group of notable, famous or popular actors.
