Jane Grey (born Mamie Larock; May 22, 1882—November 9, 1944) was an American stage and screen actress of the silent era.[1][2]

Early life

Born in Vermont in 1882, Mamie (later Jane Grey) was the fifth child of seven children of Louisa May and Joseph Larock.[1] The federal census of 1900 documents that her father, a native of Canada, was a "common day laborer" and that her Vermont-born mother washed other people's clothes to earn extra money to support the large family.[1]

Stage and film

Grey started her Broadway career around 1911 and was the original female lead with John Barrymore in the popular 1914 stage play Kick In written by Willard Mack .[3] Grey, who began appearing in films around 1913, was in Hassard Short's All-Star Shakespearean pageant for Actor's Equity in 1921, and she was also cast in a few French productions for Louis Feuillade in the early 1920s.[4] Although her final film role was in 1927, she continued to perform on stage until 1935.[citation needed]

Personal life and death

Grey was married twice, to Ricardo Martin and then to William E. Tyrrel.[5][6]
