Ethel Grey Terry was born in Oakland, California, the daughter of actress Lillian Lawrence.[1] She first appeared on stage, in a supporting role to Wallace Eddinger, when she was 5 years old.[2] Raised in Roxbury, Massachusetts, Terry attended Notre Dame Academy for seven years. She had an early interest in art and planned to make her career in that field.[3]


Terry appeared on Broadway for two years in David Belasco's productions and later performed in Shubert productions.[4] Her Broadway credits included Honor Be Damned! (1927), Search Me (1915), The Smoldering Flame (1913), The Only Son (1911), and The Lily (1909).[5] Her activities on stage included speaking the first line when the Little Theater opened in Los Angeles with a production of The Pigeon. She also had the female lead in Anatole at that theater and portrayed the mother in Civilian Clothes when it was presented in Chicago.[6]

Terry operated a stock theater company in Schenectady, New York,[4] and it also presented plays in Boston, Minneapolis, and St. Paul.[7]

Terry appeared in 52 films between 1914 and 1928, sometimes as a leading lady but often in supporting roles.

Personal life and death

She married Danish actor Carl Gerard in 1910 and remained with him until her death.[8]

On January 6, 1931, following a year's illness, Terry died at her home in Hollywood.[4] Her ashes were interred at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.[9]
