Stella LeSaint (née Razeto;[a] December 17, 1881 – September 21, 1948)[3] was an American silent film actress.


Born in San Diego, California,[3] LeSaint worked as a stage actress and in vaudeville, founding Stella Razeto and Company in New York City.[citation needed] She left stage acting because of illness.[2]

LeSaint began acting in films in 1913.[3] She worked with the Selig Polyscope Company but left in 1916 to join the Universal Company.[4] She starred with William Garwood in films such as Lord John in New York.

In 1917, LeSaint left films to return to the stage, but by 1935, she had returned to films, acting mostly in uncredited bit parts.[5]

Personal life

She married Edward LeSaint[3] on December 25, 1913, and remained with him until his death on September 10, 1940.[citation needed] She died on September 21, 1948, in Malibu, California,[3] and is buried in Hollywood Forever Cemetery.[6]

Although she took Le Saint as her married name, "she kept Razetto/Razeto for all professional dealings".[2]
