Caroline Hill, Mrs. Herbert Kelcey

Caroline Hill, Mrs. Herbert Kelcey, was a British actress. She and her husband, Herbert Kelcey (1856-1917), a successful stage (and film) actor, were brought to the U.S. by Lester Wallack. Hill made her New York debut in 1883 as the volatile Lady Dolly Vanderdecken in "Moths," at Wallack's Theatre, and was lauded for her sparkling persona and elaborate costumes. At the Park Theatre in Brooklyn, Hill played Fanny Gainsborough in "The Pulse of New York," where she and her husband were also in the casts of "Confusion " and "Old Love Letters," in 1884. In "Broken Hearts," the actress was Lady Hilda at the Madison Square Theatre in 1885. In 1886 Hill starred in a summer tour as the wife of "Jim the Penman." When Hill returned to England in the 1890s, her marriage with Kelcey ended. Here the actress poses in costume in London, where she performed at the Haymarket Theatre.
