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?'

Gabrielle Ray – Engagement – The Beds. Advertiser and Luton Times – Friday 12th January 1912



Miss Gabrielle Ray, the charming dancer and singer of Mr. George Edwardes companies, is engaged to Mr, Eric Loder, son of Mr. Alfred Loder, and grandson of the late Sir Loder, first baronet. Both the young people have modestly confirmed the announcement. The proposal was made and accepted in Paris. Mr Loder, who looked very happy when interviewed, said he did not desire any fuss to be made. He is said to be very wealthy. One firm alone is said to have sold between 7,000,000 and 10,000,000 picture postcards of Miss Gabrielle Bay. She is in her 27th year, but does not look it, and made her stage debut the age of 10. An enthusiastic Frenchman, writing in the “Temps” a few days ago, described Miss Ray the prettiest actress on the English stage and the most beautiful woman in the United Kingdom.
