Lovely, statuesque actress Sally Gray, complete with husky voice and exuberant blonde persona was born Constance Vera Stevens in London, England on February 14, 1916. Sally began performing at age 10 in minstrel shows and was trained in dance and acting at the Fay Compton Studio of Dramatic Art. She made her film debut in School for Scandal (1930). Throughout the late 1930s the shapely, vivacious actress appeared in such films as The Dictator (1935), Checkmate (1935), Cafe Colette (1937), and The Saint in London (1939). She was also utilized by actor/director Stanley Lupino in such light "B"-level entertainment as Cheer Up (1936), Hold My Hand (1938) and Over She Goes (1938). Following the filming of The Saint's Vacation (1941) and Dangerous Moonlight (1941), Sally suffered a major nervous breakdown and was off the screen for five years. She bounced back in the post-war years with "bad girl" roles in heavier dramas such as Green for Danger (1946), They Made Me a Fugitive (1947) The Mark of Cain (1947), and Obsession (1949). In 1950 she married Dominick Geoffrey Edward Browne, Lord Oranmore. Her last film was Escape Route (1952). Sally died at age 90 on September 24, 2006, in London.
