Marie Lohr (28 July 1890 – 21 January 1975) was an Australian-born film and stage actress, active on stage and in film in Britain.


Marie Löhr was born in Sydney, New South Wales, to Lewis J. Löhr, treasurer of the Melbourne opera house, and his wife, the English actress Kate Bishop (1848–1923). Her maternal uncle, Alfred Bishop, along with her godparents, William and Madge Kendal, were also actors.[1] She married at St-Martins-in-the-Fields in 1912.[2] She divorced her spouse Mr. Anthony Leyland Prinsep, the theatrical producer, in 1928. They had one child. [3] Her godparents were the actors the Kendals, on the death of Dame Madge Kendal in 1935, Lohr inherited their property at Filey.[4]


Her first stage appearance was in Sydney, aged 4, in The World Against Her. Her London debut (after the family's move to Britain), was at age ten, in Shockheaded Peter as well as The Man Who Stole the Castle. (Shockheaded Peter also starred Kate Bishop and George Grossmith Jr., and was produced at the Garrick Theatre in 1900.) [5] The run was curtailed by the death of Queen Victoria, and brought back in 1901, a critic commented "one little actress, 'A Child', represented by Miss Marie Lohr, I think, being particularly good".[6] Her later stage-work included appearances in a 1929 London stage production of Beau Geste alongside Laurence Olivier, and in the original production of the 1930 play The Bread-Winner.

Her first film appearance was in the 1932 film version of Aren't we All?, and — having appeared in several of George Bernard Shaw's works onstage — her subsequent films included two Shaw adaptations. The Noel Coward play Present Laughter was shown as a 'Play of the Week' broadcast by ATV in 1967, Lohr appears alongside Peter O'Toole and Honor Blackman.[7] Later that year she was on tour as 'Lady Hunstanton' with the cast of A Woman Of No Importance a revival of the play by Oscar Wilde, adapted by Paul Dehn.[8] Lohr died at the age of 84, and was buried in the Brompton Cemetery in west London.
