Eily Malyon (born Eily Sophie Lees-Craston, 30 October 1879 – 26 September 1961) was an English character actress from about 1900 to the 1940s. She had a stage career in Britain, Australia and America before moving to Hollywood to perform in motion pictures.

History

The daughter of Harry Craston, a master boot and lawn tennis shoe manufacturer, and his wife, Malyon was born in the London district of Islington in 1879. Her parents divorced in 1882, and she accompanied her mother, the actress Agnes Thomas, touring the world. Consequently she received much of her education in convent schools in Belgium, England and America. She so enjoyed her stay at the Ursuline convents near Liège and Visé that she resolved to become a nun,[1] but changed her mind after experience as understudy to her mother at Drury Lane. She gained further experience in repertory with the Stage Society in London.[2]

She spent some time in Australia, initially as a member of Ethel Irving's company, brought to Melbourne in 1911 by J. C. Williamson to play The Witness for the Defence,[3] then played for Williamson in an English comedy company touring Milestones, in the role of Rose Sibley.[4] She played in repertory and at the Little Theatre for Frederick Ward in Sydney 1915–1916[5] and for Gregan McMahon in Melbourne 1916–1918.[6] She left Australia for a career on the American stage in September 1925.[7]

Malyon specialised in playing stern schoolteachers, maids, nurses, nuns, governesses and spinsters, usually in melodramas, historical dramas and thrillers.

Personal

Malyon married Joshua Plumpton Wilson in Melbourne on 9 December 1911, divorced May 1922.[8]
