Character actress, Beatrice Varley, was born on Jul 11, 1896 in Manchester, Lancashire. Varley died at the age of 68 on Jul 4, 1964 in Ealing, London .
Beatrice Varley was a careworn-looking British actress whose downturned mouth and wrinkled forehead consigned her for years to play down-trodden women who, one felt, had perhaps come from slightly better stock than those who ill-treated them. She also played maids, housekeepers and glum aunts, and was certainly memorable in the film, "Hatter's Castle" (1942), as the cancer and husband-ridden 'Mrs. Brodie', a role that set the pattern for her career.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
