Virginia Weidler Overview:

Character actress, Virginia Weidler, was born on Mar 21, 1927 in Eagle Rock, CA. Weidler died at the age of 41 on Jul 1, 1968 in Los Angeles, CA .

Not many screen children really qualify as character players, but bumpy-nosed Virginia Weidler was definitely one of them. The dark-haired Californian tot had honest, inquisitive features, could sing and was usually seen as the kid told to scram because she bothered the adults in films like George Cukor's The Philadelphia and 1943's Best Foot Forward.  Like many child actors, when Weilder reached adulthood she moved away from the Hollywood scene, retiring from the film Industry in 1943.

Virginia Weidler Facts
Had a heart condition for many years, which ultimately led to her early death at the age of only 41.

Husband Lionel Krisel was a naval officer. Their two sons were named Ronnie Krisel and Gary Krisel.

When asked about her career in her later years, her husband Lionel Krisel said that Virginia "would always change the subject as quickly as possible without being rude. She never watched her old movies or replied to requests for interviews. Although she was never one to criticize, I think our boys got the impression that their mother didn't think very much of the motion picture industry".
