5Actor Robert Edeson convinced her to try films and introduced her to D.W. Griffith at Biograph Studios in which she appeared in Under Two Flags (1915). One of the first actresses to work for sign a long term contract with Universal in 1915, one of her earliest films at the studio was the short The Shadows of Suspicion (1916).
