George Edwards (born as Harold Parks, 11 March 1886 in Kent Town, South Australia; died 1953) was an Australian actor and producer.
Edwards was a pioneer of the radio serial in Australia. Prior to that he was a comedian, vaudeville artist, acrobatic dancer and stage performer. It is claimed that he changed his name from Harold Parks to George Edwards at the behest of Edward Branscombe, who was putting together an up-market act and did not want anyone associated with low-brow music hall, and that he took the name from English theatrical impresario George Edwards. He performed in a radio drama adaption of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
