Praised by Hollywood cameramen as one of the most natural beauties to grace the screen, Seena began her career at the Kalem Studios, later moving to D.W. Griffith's company where she met future husband George Walsh while filming the epic "Intolerance," in 1916. With the advent of sound, Owen's acting career ended due to her listless voice and she retired in 1933. However, she went on to a successful career as a screenwriter, writing two of Dorothy Lamour's best films "Aloma of the South Seas" and "Rainbow Island." Owen died following a brief illness.
