Biography

After pursuing a singing career in her native Chicago, Myrtle Stedman entered films in 1910 as a leading lady at the Selig Studios. Stedman subsequently earned the soubriquet "the red corpuscle girl" because of her energetic appearances in a series of films based on the works of Jack London. During this period, she was married to actor/director Marshall Stedman, a popular screen attraction in his own right; their son, Lincoln Stedman, also enjoyed a busy screen career. Myrtle Stedman was seen in matronly roles throughout the 1920s, and in bit parts in talkies until her death in 1938. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
