Before entering films, Gypsy Abbott performed for a number of years on stage and in vaudeville. She began with E. H. Sothern's repertoire company and later played Flora Belle Fry in a road production of George M. Cohan's Little Johnny Jones.[1]

She married director Henry King in 1915[2] and was sometimes credited as Gypsie Abbott.

She is buried in the Grotto Section at Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, California.
