Taylor, Joseph

▪ British actor
born 1586?, England
died Nov. 4, 1652, London

      English actor mentioned in the First Folio of Shakespeare in 1623 as one of the 26 who took principal parts in all of those plays and one of the 10 actors who signed the dedication of the first folio (1647) of Beaumont and Fletcher.

      Taylor acted with the Duke of York's Men in 1610 but left it the next year to join Lady Elizabeth's Men, playing in The Honest Man's Fortune (1613), in Beaumont and Fletcher's Coxcombe (1613), and as a principal in Ben Jonson's Bartholomew Fair (1614). From 1616 to 1619 he was with the Prince's Men, and until his retirement in 1642 he was one of the most prominent members of the King's Men and a leader in the management of that company. He succeeded Richard Burbage (Burbage, Richard) as principal actor, playing several of his parts, including Ferdinand in John Webster's Duchess of Malfi (1619–20) and the title role in Hamlet. There is a legend that Taylor was trained by Shakespeare (Shakespeare, William) to play Hamlet, but more likely Shakespeare taught Burbage, who in turn instructed Taylor. He also appeared in Jonson's The Alchemist, Volpone (as Mosca), and Epicoene; Philip Massinger's Believe As You List; and Fletcher's The Wild-Goose Chase. Taylor owned two shares of the Globe Theatre and one of the Blackfriars (Blackfriars Theatre).
