Vera Doria (born Veronica Eyton) was an Australian actress and opera singer active in Hollywood during the silent era.[1][2]

Biography

Vera was born in Tasmania, Australia, to New Zealanders Robert Eyton and Maude Fosbery. She began singing opera in her native Australia as a young woman and toured Europe in the early 1910s.[3]

Eventually followed her older siblings, Alice Eyton (a screenwriter) and Charles Eyton (a film producer) to Los Angeles in 1915 seeking a career as an actress.[3][4] At the time, she was married to fellow opera singer Juan de la Cruz.[5][6]

She appears to have retired from acting in the late 1910s to focus on her singing career.[7] She eventually moved to Shanghai, where she met and married her second and third husbands, John Snodgrass and Harold Wavell.[8][9] after she returned, she became a children's author.

She died on 22 June 1957.
