Mabel Trunnelle (November 8, 1879 – April 20, 1981)[1] was an American actress who appeared in 194 films between 1908 and 1923.

Biography[edit]

Trunnelle was born in Dwight, Illinois and died in Glendale, California.

Photoplay magazine argued that she was the merry-serious girl whose expressive eyes and face mirror emotions more effectively than a hundred voices. She was educated upon the stage for the five years she had spent in films, mostly before Edison cameras. Miss Trunnelle was a modest, cheerful, winsome young American wife whose husband was Herbert Prior.[2]

She was a prominent star in early silent films of Edison Films, and frequently co-starred with Prior.[3]
