Gloria Stuart

Born: 4 July 1910, Santa Monica, California, USA
Died: 26 September 2010, Los Angeles, California, USA

Gloria Stuart was a stage and screen actress whose career flourished in the 1930s with starring roles in feature films like 'The Invisible Man (1933)' and 'Roman Scandals (1933)'. She was contracted to Universal Pictures in 1932. In the 1940s Stuart gave up films to concentrate on stage work and ultimately on becoming a talented and respected artist in many mediums.

After nearly 30 years away from the screen, Gloria Stuart began to appear in television series in the 1970s. Twenty years later she was given her most iconic role in the film 'Titanic (1997)' as Old Rose, whose memories give the film its narration. Gloria was the oldest person ever to be nominated for an Academy Award at the 1998 Oscars when she was 87.
