Gloria Holden Overview:

Character actress, Gloria Holden, was born on Sep 5, 1908 in London, UK. Holden died at the age of 82 on Mar 22, 1991 in Redlands, CA and was laid to rest in Hillside Memorial Park Cemetery in Redlands, San Bernardino County, CA.


Gloria Holden was an austere and rather sinister-looking English actress who made an enormous impact in 1936 in the title role of "Dracula's Daughter", then waited for offers of other leading roles that never materialized. She played smaller parts from the late 1930s, often proving a formidable adversary for the leading lady.
