Gabrielle Ray

'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

Lady Madcap - The Tatler - 29th November 1905

Miss Gabrielle Ray, who is playing the part of Susan, maid to Lady Betty Clarridge, Lord Framlingham’s daughter, the heroine of “Lady Madcap,” is not an American as her curious cadences might suggest, but is quite English. She made her first impression in London by appearing as the maid in “The Girl from Kays“; then she appeared at the Gaiety as the secretary of the orchid-hunter; and from there passed to the Prince of Wales’s Theatre.
