Liilie Langtry
née Emilie Charleotte Le Breton
b. 10-13-1853; Island of Jersey
d. 2-12-1929; Monaco

Lillie Langtry, a renowned beauty nicknamed the “Jersey Lily”, went into acting as a means of financial support. She also used her celebrity status to endorse products like soap and cosmetics.

Langtry had a number of prominent lovers, including the future king of England, Edward VII. She is also linked to the eccentric Judge Roy Bean (1825-1903) who was so obsessed with her that he lived in a town named Langtry and called his West Texas saloon “The Jersey Lily” after her, though they never met. She did however, visit the place after his death.

FYI - The floral symbol of the Isle of Jersey is the Amaryllis belladonna, popular named the Jersey Lily.

Florence Lawrence
née Florence Annie Bridgwood
b. 1-2-1886; Hamilton, Ont, Canada
d. 12-28-1938; West Hollywood, CA (suicide)

Silent movie and stage actress Florence Lawrence is considered the first movie star, as she was the first player identified in her films. Usually the silent movie actors were not given credit for fear if the public knew who they were, the actor could command a higher salary (she did). Beginning in 1906 Lawrence appeared in more than 270 films for different motion picture companies. In 1915 she suffered injuries on set that required a long recuperation and effectively ended her ability to work.

Lawrence, a mentor to fellow Canadian Mary Pickford, was also the inventor of the first turn and stop signals for cars (which she failed to patent).

In 1991 actor Roddy McDowell paid for a commemorative plaque reading “The Biograph Girl: The First Movie Star”, for Lawrence's unmarked grave, who had died broke and nearly forgotten.
