Character actress, Gladys Henson, was born Gladys Gunn on Sep 27, 1897 in Dublin, Ireland. Henson died at the age of 85 on Dec 21, 1982 in London, UK .
Gladys Henson was an Ireland-born supporting actress in British films. On stage at age 13, she was a Hippodrome chorus girl who grew up to look plump and motherly which seemed to suit a lifetime of working-class motherhood roles. Thus without previous film experience, she came quickly into demand in post-war years, appearing more than once as the wife of Jack Warner, forever doing the washing and cooking. She was married to actor-comedian Leslie Henson from 1926-1943 (divorced), and never remarried.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
