Personal Quote:

I just never think about my days in pictures. I am always surprised that anyone remembers me. It was so long ago. So many of my movies were so sad. Maybe my fans would like to know that in real life Carol Dempster had a happy ending.


Attended Ruth St. Denis Dancing School, where she was discovered by D.W. Griffith. He provided her with professional acting and dancing lessons, grooming her to become his leading star from 1918-26. She apparently spurned her mentor's offer of marriage. She retired from films in 1926 to marry an investment banker, Edwin Larsen, in 1929. See more »
