Violet Heming (January 27, 1895 – July 4, 1981) was an English stage and screen actress. Born Violet Hemming in Leeds, Yorkshire, she was the daughter of Alfred Hemming who appeared in silent films and Mabel Allen. She began a stage career in 1908 while in her early teens and also appeared in her first motion picture, a short film for Thanhouser Film Company, in 1910. In 1913, she appeared with George Arliss in the play Disraeli.

In September 1925, Variety reported that Heming would appear in a "playlet" for the DeForest Phonofilm sound-on-film system.

Though Heming appeared in several films and television throughout the decades she is best remembered as a dependable Broadway star with a long list of theatrical credits.[1][2]

She died July 4, 1981.
