Chrissie White

Chrissie White (23 May 1895 – 18 August 1989) was a British film actress of the silent era. She appeared in over 180 films between 1908 and 1933. White married actor and film director Henry Edwards in 1922, and in the 1920s the two were regarded as one of Britain's most newsworthy celebrity couples. Edwards directed more than 20 of his wife's films.[1] The couple had two children, a son and a daughter, Henryetta Edwards.[1] White starred in the 1920 film The Amazing Quest of Mr. Ernest Bliss, which as of August 2010 is missing from the BFI National Archive, and is listed as one of the British Film Institute's "75 Most Wanted" lost films.[2]
