GOT, Francois Jules Edmond, a poptdar French comedian, born at Lignerolles (Orae), Oct. 1, 1822, received his education at the College Charlemagne, and after being employed for a short time at the Prefecture of the Seine, entered M. Provosfs class at the Conservatoire, where, in 1842, he carried off the second, and in 1843 the first prize for comedy. After a year's compulsory service in the army, he made his first bow to a Parisian audience in 1844 at the Comedie Fran9ais, of which Society he became a member in 1850. M. Got's reputation steadily increased, and he is now most deservedly regarded as one of the cleverest comic actors on the French stage. He excels in the representation of the leading comic parts in the old classical dramas, and has created scores of original characters in modern pieces. M. Got's name has been frequently before the public, in connection with the internal dissensions of the Comedie Fran- ^aise. When M. Got and his colleagues of the Th^dtre Francjaise visited London in 1871, they were entertained at a public dinner at the Crystal Palace. On Aug. 4, 1881, M. Turquet, the Under Secretary of State for Fine Arts, publicly conferred the Cross of the Legion of Honour on M. Got at the Conservatoire. It was as Professor of the Conservatoire that M. Got received this high recom- pense for his services.
