Mini-Biography:
Violet Mersereau was born on October 2, 1897 in New York, NY, US. She was an American Actress, known for His Duty (1909), The Feud and the Turkey (1908), The Test of Friendship (1908), Violet Mersereau's first movie on record is from 1908. Violet Mersereau died on November 12, 1975 in Plymouth, Massachusetts, US. Her last motion picture on file dates from 1926.
Biographical Notes in German: Schauspielerin des amerikanischen Stummfilms in mehr als 100 Filmen, nach anderen Quellen 1892 geboren, Schwester der Schauspielerin Claire Mersereau, Tochter der französischen Schauspielerin Mme. Luzanzie. Nach dem Tod ihres Mannes kehrte die Mutter zur Bühne zurück, und auch die Töchter traten bereits als Kinder im Theater auf. Violet begann ihre Theaterkarriere 1906 bei Margaret Anglin, sie spielte die Rolle der Flora Cameron in der Erstaufführung des Bühnenstücks "The Clansman", das später David Wark Griffith als Vorlage zu seinem Film "Birth of a Nation" diente, 1910 tritt sie über 200 Mal in dem Stück "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" am Broadway in New York auf.
1908 hatte Violet erste Filmrollen bei Griffith, 1911 folgten Engagements bei der Nestor, wo man sie auf den Typ der Jungen und Naiven festlegte: sie sollte reiten und schwimmen können, das reiche ! 1914 kam Violet Mersereau zu Carl Laemmle, und es folgte ihre erfolgreichste Zeit, auch wenn sie nie die Populariät einer Lilian Gish oder Mary Pickford erreichen konnte. Rex Ingram besetzte sie in seinen beiden ersten Filmen, in "The Great Problem" spielte sie gleich eine Doppelrolle. 1919 lief ihr Vertrag mit der Universal aus, die folgenden Filme hatten nur noch mässigen Erfolg. Aufmerksam wurde man nochmals auf Violet Mersereau, als sie 1922 in der in Italien gedrehten Produktion "Nero" die Rolle der verführerischen Marcia spielte. Aber die Zeit der "naiven Unschuldigen" war vorbei, ihre Rollentypologie ein Relikt aus dem vergangenen Jahrzehnt, und nach dem Flop von "The Wives of the Prophet" endete ihre Karriere.
Über ihr späteres Leben ist kaum etwas bekannt, 1940 sollen die beiden Schwestern in New York gelebt haben. Violet soll in Italien gestorben sein, andere Quellen vermelden ihren Tod 1961, andere geben den 12. November 1975 in Plymouth als Todesort an.
Ihre Filme sind bis auf wenige verschollen, ein paar Fotos und das faszinierende Titelbild aus dem Motion Picture Magazine von 1917 sind geblieben. (lhg 2007)
