Biography

A tall character actress turned dress extra and a fixture in Hollywood films 1929-1948, Almeda Fowler was a schoolteacher prior to embarking on a long stage career that included appearances opposite the legendary Nora Bayes in Ladies First and Her Family Tree, Mrs. Leslie Carter in Stella Dallas, Frank Craven in 19th Hole, and the Marx Brothers in Cocoanuts. Fowler made her screen debut in Party Girl (1930) and would be found near the bottom of cast lists for the next two decades, often playing nurses, receptionists, and chair women. More often than not, her credit would simply read "woman" or "bystander." ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
