Eily Malyon Overview:

Character actress, Eily Malyon, was born Eily S. Lees-Craston on Oct 30, 1879 in London, UK. Malyon died at the age of 81 on Sep 26, 1961 in South Pasadena, CA .


Eily Malyon was a fair-haired, gloomy-looking British stage actress with strong features who came to Hollywood in the early 1930s. Her almost weather-beaten face and sharp delivery qualified her for severe, sour, be-stern-with-the-children roles. She was still glooming about as Mrs. Sketcher in 1943's "Jane Eyre" and only retired at age 70.
