Occupation Actress

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


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]
