Fern Andra (November 24, ca. 1894- February 8, 1974) was an American actress, film director, script writer and producer. Next to Henny Porten and Asta Nielsen she was one of the most popular and best-known actresses in German silent films of the 1910s. Born as Vernal Edna Andrews in Watseka, Illinois, the daughter of a circus performer and an opera singer, Andra was already appearing in public in a tightrope act by the age of four. She was later trained in song and dance. As early as 1899, in New York, she made her first film, a version of Uncle Tom's Cabin. She remained however with the circus, with which she embarked on an extensive tour across the United States, Canada and Europe. While in Berlin she met Max Reinhardt, who gave her acting lessons.show more
