Hull, Thomas (1728–1808), Anglo-Irish actor and playwright. 

He played a wide range of secondary roles—Friar Laurence, Buckingham, Edgar, Pisanio—in Dublin, Bath, and, from 1759, Covent Garden. He adapted Shadwell’s Timon of Athens, abridged The Winter’s Tale, and wrote two versions of The Comedy of Errors.
