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?'

MISS GABRIELLE RAY TO BE MARRIED

 

Gabrielle Ray, whose dainty dancing and fascinating manner have made her a favourite of musical comedy actresses, has become engaged to Mr. Eric Loder, a young member of one of the most distinguished families in England.

He is wealthy, aged twenty-three, younger son of the late Mr. Alfred Loder, grandson of the late Sir Robert Loder, baronet, and younger brother of Mr. Basil Loder, who four years ago resigned his commission in the Scots Guards and married Miss Barbara Deane one of the most charming singers in Mr. Seymour Hicks’s “Gay Gordon” company.

No date has yet been fixed for the marriage. Both are now spending a holiday in Paris, and Mr. Loder has been to see several plays with Miss Ray.

Miss Gabrielle Ray, who now confesses to being twenty-six, first appeared on the boards as a child of ten at the old Princess’s Theatre, in Oxford-street, in “Green Bushes.”

She is the picture postcard favourite, and has already surpassed the vogue formerly enjoyed by Marie Studholme and Edna May in this sphere. One photograph company has taken her in no less than a thousand poses, and over 10,000 copies been sold of her dressed as Millais’s “Bubbles,” a picture to which her child’s face was singularly adapted.

Bubbles – The Advertiser – 1913

  Miss Gabrielle Ray has probably been photographed more times than any woman in the world.

  In the back blocks of Australia, the frozen solitudes of Canada, the malarial swamps of equatorial Africa, the baked plains and snow capped hills of India, the picture of Gabrielle Ray has looked down on mixed humanity in bewitching, roguish, regretful, but always alluring poses.

  “The most successful picture we printed of Miss Ray” said the Rotary Photographic Company “was the one she posed for after the famous picture “Bubbles,” by Millais.

  “But all her photographs sold well. Her type of beauty was exceptionally suited to photographic art. She has that wonderful gift of expression which makes all the difference to the photographer. In all her pictures there is something which suggests life.

  “A woman may be beautiful, but expressionless, the face stares out of the photograph, giving merely an outline of beauty; but in all Miss Ray’s pictures you see more than this. Perhaps the highest compliment one could pay her would be to use the hackneyed phrase “a speaking likeness.”
