Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Popular and durable actress of the British stage, especially in comedy, whose career dates back to 1908. Seyler appeared in silent films during the 1920s and played small roles in "The Mill on the Floss" (1937) and "The Citadel" (1938), but really came to the fore with her wry performance in Anthony Asquith's delightful "Quiet Wedding" (1940), stealing scenes from a remarkable cast of ace character actors. She was guilty of similar comic larceny in "Dear Octopus" (1943).
