Naomi Childers
Birth: Nov. 15, 1892
Pottstown
Montgomery County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: May 9, 1964
Hollywood
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Silent Film Actress. Born in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. Her childhood was spent in St. Louis, Missouri where she was educated in the Maryville convent. She began her acting at the age of three, and played a Chopin number at an adult recital at the age of eight. When she was ten Naomi performed the title roles, in both Red Riding Hood and Alice in Wonderland, at the Odeon Theater in St. Louis. In 1912 she played in The Great Name and Madame X. The theatrical presentations featured Henry Kolker and Dorothy Donnelly. On Broadway she appeared in Ready Money. She appeared in The Turn of the Road in 1915 and The Writing on the Wall in 1916. She was associated with the Vitagraph company for four years. Her most popular role was in Womanhood, the Glory of the Nation. In 1917 she began working with the Commonwealth Company. Naomi possessed a preference for comedy, yet she was in constant demand to play more serious roles. Her character work in motion pictures was a strong asset. In the 1919 Sam Goldwyn film Lord and Lady Algy, she was cast in the leading feminine role. She depicted the wife of the young Lord Algy, played by Tom Moore. As a titled Englishwoman she revealed a cold exterior, but retained a warm nature. In December 1929 she was given a divorce from Luther A. Reed, Hollywood scenario writer and motion picture director, on grounds of desertion. The superior court of Los Angeles, California awarded her custody of her eight-year-old son. From 1913 to 1947 she played in 60 films. She died at the age of 71. (bio by: Shock)
