Carlotta Leclercq was a popular actress who made her debut as a dancer in "The Harvest Home" at the Adelphi Theatre in London, circa 1848. In 1857 Leclercq played Miranda in Charles Kean's production of "The Tempest" at The Princess' Theatre. During the 1867-68 season at the Adelphi the actress performed in "Colleen Bawn" and "A Day of Reckoning," and was praised for the pathos of her interpretation. Leclercq took Wilkie Collins's "The New Magdalen" to the United States in 1873. Despite her training and talent, she never became popular with U.S. audiences. Leclercq poses in costume at the Sarony studio in New York City, circa 1873.
