Vera White (1893 - 1949) was an Australian actress primarily in silent films.

Born in Melbourne, perhaps her most accessible performance today is as "Kay's Friend" in the 1928 Laurel and Hardy silent short subject We Faw Down. She delivers to Stan the pie that prevents Ollie from being stabbed by pugilist "One Round" Kelly; later, it's her delivery of Ollie's vest to his front door — and her coy fondism "Big Boy" — that provokes Mrs. Hardy's shotgun-wielding rampage that ends the picture.[1]
