Biography

Lambeth, London, England, UK
Mary Clare was a versatile British character actress of redoubtable presence. On the London stage from 1910 (some sources say 1912), she later alternated her theatrical appearances with acting on screen. During the 1920's and 30's, she specialised in stately characters and villainesses in period dramas. On stage, she was best served as star of Noel Coward's "Cavalcade", or in John Galsworthy's "The Skin Game" (a role she later reprised for the screen). Read more...
