Anne Grey (born Aileen Stephen Ewing; 6 March 1907 – 3 April 1987) was an English actress,[1] who appeared in 44 films between 1928 and 1939, including some Hollywood films during the late 1930s. She was educated at Lausanne and King's College London.[2]

She had originally intended a literary career, and to become a journalist but went on stage instead. Her first film experience in 1925 was in a crowd scene in The Constant Nymph but she got second lead in her next picture just two months later. In 1934 she went to Hollywood.[citation needed]
