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 – Life Off the Stage – The Weekly Dispatch (London) – Sunday 26th May 1912


Life Off the Stage.

It is curious how quickly the public gives up talking about well-known people once they retire, temporarily or otherwise, from the occupation that has brought them into prominence. One never hears a word of Gabrielle Ray now that she married and gone away, and people have ceased inquiring when Miss Lily Elsie will return to the stage. I would not be in the least surprised if both those Daly’s Theatre actresses found life away from the stage so pleasant that they will never return to the theatre unless as spectators. They would only be following the example of Miss Edna May, who loves the theatre; “but as for acting, no, no, never again, on any terms.” And yet she looks wonderfully pretty now.
