Shirley Grey (born Agnes Zetterstrand;[2] April 11, 1902 – August 12, 1981) was an American actress. She appeared in 46 films between 1930 and 1935.

Biography

Born in Naugatuck, Connecticut, Grey was the daughter of E. A Zetterstrand, a minister,[3] who died when she was eight years old. Thereafter, her mother raised Grey and her six siblings.[4] She graduated from Waterbury High School, where she was active in the Dramatic Club.[3]

Grey began her acting career with the Poli Players.[5] She went on to act with companies in New Orleans, Louisiana; Jacksonville, Florida; San Francisco, California, and Nova Scotia.[3] She had her own acting troupe, the Shirley Grey Players, in the late 1920s.[6] In 1931, she starred in the comedy-drama Chicago at the Fulton Theater in Oakland, California. It was the third play of Grey's "limited season".[7]

Grey's work in stock theater led to her career in films. A talent scout who worked for film producer Samuel Goldwyn saw Grey performing in a stock production in Oakland and arranged for her to take a screen test, which led to her signing a contract with Goldwyn.[8]

On August 28, 1921, Grey married actor Foster Williams,[9] known professionally as Frank McCarthy.[10] She filed for divorce from him on September 30, 1925.[9] In 1936, Grey married English actor Arthur Margetson, who died in 1951.[2]

In her later years, Grey was a semi-recluse, living with her sisters before moving to a Jacksonville Beach, Florida, convalescent home where she died.[11]
