She was married to writer/journalist Eric Siepman at age 19. She won a role in Ivor Novello's play "Symphony in Two Flats" and she accompanied Novello when he took the play to New York. She was under contract to both RKO and MGM. In 1935 she was cast, by MGM, in Tarzan Escapes. She married Ronald Colman in 1938 and they had their only child, Juliet, in 1943.
