Edith Roberts (September 17, 1899 – August 20, 1935) was a silent film actress from New York City. She was a child performer in vaudeville before she came to Hollywood, California in 1915. Among her more than one hundred fifty screen credits are roles in Seven Keys to Baldpate (1925), Big Brother (1923), The Wagon Master (1929), and The Mystery Club (1926). Her final film role was in Two O'Clock in the Morning (1929).
In private life she was Mrs. Harold Carter. She died, aged 35, from septicemia at the Hollywood Hospital in 1935, shortly after giving birth to a son, Robert, her only child. A Christian Science memorial service was conducted at the chapel at Hollywood Cemetery, Los Angeles, California. Her sister was the actress Leona Roberts, and she was an aunt of Josephine Hutchinson.
