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).With her poached-egg eyes and wizened warmth, Seyler was most active in film during the 1950s, with turns as Miss Witherfield in "The Pickwick Papers" (1952), the villain's mother in "Curse of the Demon" (1957) and the stalwart Miss Pross in the 1958 version of "A Tale of Two Cities." The co-author, with Stephen Haggard, of the enduringly popular "The Craft of Comedy" (1944), the long-lived Seyler (she died at age 101) was created a Commander of the British Empire in her later years.
