Virginia True Boardman (born Margaret Shields,[1][2][3][4] May 23, 1889 – June 10, 1971) was an American actress of the silent era.

Biography

Born in Fort Davis, Texas,[5] Boardman began her theatrical career in 1906 as Virginia Eames (using her mother's surname)[citation needed] and acted with the Streeter-Bryan company in 1908.[6]

She went on to appear in 52 films between 1911 and 1936. Although her career started off strong, like many actresses of the silent film era she failed to make a successful transition to talking films, and by the mid-1930s her career was at its end for all practical purposes.

On January 16, 1909, she married actor True Boardman,[7] and they remained wed until his death in 1918. The couple performed together in stock theater companies and in vaudeville.[7] They had one child, True Eames Boardman, who after a brief acting career had a long career as a script writer for radio, film and television. He was also the grandfather of actress Lisa Gerritsen.[8]

She died in Hollywood, California, aged 82, from a heart attack.[9]
