Lillian Walker

1887 - 1975

Die Schauspielerin Lillian Walker war in den 10er Jahren ein grosser Star des Stummfilms.
Begonnen hatte sie ihre Laufbahn bereits 1909 und mit ihrem Vertrag bei Vitagraph 1911 wurde sie schnell bekannt und spielte oft zusammen mit John Bunny in vielen Filmen.
Zu ihren ersten Produktionen gehören "Love's Awakening" (10), "The Inherited Taint" (11), "In the Arctic Night" (11), "The Willow Tree" (11), "Cherry Blossoms" (11), "The Great Diamond Robbery" (12), "Pandora's Box" (12), "The Money Kings" (12), "The Reincarnation of Karma" (12), "Cinerella's Slipper" (13), "The Mouse and the Lion" (13), "The Carpenter" (13) und "The Right Man" (13).

Mitte der 10er Jahre erreichte sie den Höhepunkt ihrer Laufbahn und sie agierte in den nächsten Jahren in den erfolgreichen Filmen "Art for a Heart" (14), "Lillian's Dilemma" (14), "Lily of the Valley" (14), "The Enemies" (15), "The Fire Escape" (15), "The Ordeal of Elizabeth" (16), "The Kid" (16), "Indiscretion" (17) und The Princess of Park Row" (17).

1918 gründete sie ihre eigene Produktionsgesellschaft "Crest Productions", doch die Glanzzeit ihrer Karriere war vorüber, neue Gesichter waren gefragt.
Sie agierte noch in den Filmen "The Embarassment of Riches" (18), "The Better Wife" (19), "The Joyous Liar" (19), "A Woman of No Importance" (21) und "Serum of Evil" (22).

Es folgte ein längerer Unterbruch, ehe sie 1929 in dem Film "Pusher-in-the-Face" (29) und 1934 in "Enlighten Thy Daughter" (34) - ihrem einzigen Tonfilm - nochmals vor die Kamera trat.

In den 30er Jahren widmete sie sich wieder vermehrt dem Theater und spielte u.a. auch am Broadway.
