Eileen Percy (21 August 1900 – 29 July 1973) was an Irish-born American actress of the silent era.[1][2] She appeared in 68 films between 1917 and 1933.


Born in Belfast in 1900, Percy lived in Brooklyn, New York, briefly in 1903 before returning to Belfast. She came back to Brooklyn at age nine, entering a convent there. After graduating from the convent, she became a model for artists, including Charles Dana Gibson. Some of the pictures for which she posed were used for magazine covers.[3]

After her film career ended, Percy became a staff correspondent for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.[4]

In 1919, Percy married Ulrich Busch.[5] They divorced in 1930.[6] Her second husband from 1936 was songwriter Harry Ruby.[7]

She died in Los Angeles, California, in 1973. Her remains are buried at Chapel of the Pines Crematory.

She was portrayed by Arlene Dahl in Three Little Words (1950).
