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 – All Fools’ Day Revel – The Sporting Times – Saturday 4th April 1914

 

ROUND THE TOWN.

 I looked in at the All Fools’ Day Revel at Covent Garden on Wednesday night, but, truth to tell, though it was very full, the proceedings were not particularly hilarious. In fact, the majority the participants wore a worried look, suggestive of unpaid rent, and obtrusive tax collectors. Well known people were scarce, but I caught a glimpse of Marie Lohr dancing energetically; Gabrielle Ray, otherwise Mrs. Eric Loder, in very natty sailor boy’s costume; Lily Elsie, who hardly left her box; while the men, Sir “Romeo” Stuart was here, there, and everywhere, and a young Guardsman of my acquaintance was very resplendent in the uniform his grandfather wore at Waterloo.

Gabrielle Ray – Engagement – The Westminster Gazette – Thursday 11th January 1912

OUR LONDON LETTERS.

That popular Gaiety actress Miss Gabrielle Ray will acquire some aristocratic connexions when she marries Mr. Eric Loder. Thus one of her futures husband’s uncles is Mr. Gerald Loder, who sat as M.P. for Brighton from 1839 to 1905, holding during that period various minor offices and is married to a daughter of the late Duke of St. Albans. Another is Major Reginald Loder, whose wife (Margaret Ernestine Augusta) is a daughter of the third Earl of Listowel, and a third is Major Eustace Loder, who is well known both in Irish and English social circles.

Gabrielle Ray – Engagement – The Tatler – Wednesday 17th January 1912

More Stage and Stalls.

 An interesting engagement is that of Mr. Eric Loder, a nephew of Sir Edmund Loder, and Miss Gabrielle Ray, the well known actress of Gaiety and Daly’s fame. This bridegroom, too, like Lord Stafford and Miss Lohr’s future husband, Mr. Tony Prinsep, is some way off his quarter-century in years, but his bride-to-be confesses to twenty-seven years. Mr. Eric Loder is tall and fair and rich, and a most enthusiastic Brooklands motorist, while Miss Ray is small and fair and a delightful dancer whose charming personality is familiar to everyone. She is in fact the most bephotographed actress of the day.
