Mini Bio (1)

Sylvia Breamer was one of a flock of Australians who came to Hollywood in the early silent era. She had been a stage actress in her native Sydney for several years, and had played in several Australian productions of American stage plays, which met with great success. Hoping to capitalize on that success, she traveled to the US to try her luck on Broadway. She wasn't there long before word got back to Hollywood of an extraordinarily beautiful young Australian actress who had just hit Broadway, and soon she found herself making screen tests for several different studios. She hit Hollywood in 1917 and was put in several Charles Ray comedies for Triangle, and soon was working with such leading men as William S. Hart, Thomas Meighan and Herbert Rawlinson. She continued making films until 1926. She tried her hand at talkies and made one in 1936, Too Many Parents (1936), but apparently either didn't care for them or was intimidated by them, as she "retired" soon afterwards at the ripe old age of 33. She died in New York City in 1943.
