Biografia[modifica]

Retrat de l'actriu el 1916

Va néixer a Nova York filla d'una família d'artistes. El seu pare era Eugene A. McDowell, actor i director teatral i la seva mare, Fanny Reeves, una popular actriu a finals del segle xix.[2] Es va educar al Sacred Heart Convent on es va especialitzar en dibuix i interpretació[3] També va ingressar a la Metropolitan School of Art de Nova York abans de formar part durant quatre anys de la companyia de teatre de Charles Frohman.[1] Entre altres obres, va participar en la producció “Sky Farm” el 1903.[4] El 1906 es va casar amb l'actor Charles Hill Mailes i es va retirar[5] per tenir els seus dos fills, Robert i Eugene.[3] Claire va retornar als escenaris amb èxit com a protagonista principal de “The Clansman” que més tard D. W. Griffith portaria al cinema amb el nom d'El naixement d'una nació.[5] El 1910 va ser contractada per la Biograph de Griffith sota les ordres del qual va participar en multitud de curtmetratges.[3] Més tard, passaria a ser dirigida per Anthony O'Sullivan dins de la mateixa companyia. A principis de 1915, juntament amb el seu marit, van canviar de companyia i ella va ser contractada per tal de donar la rèplica a King Baggot a la IMP[6] però poc després tornà a la Biograph.[7][8] El juliol de 1916, quan la Biograph va cessar la seva producció, va abandonar la companyia per signar per a la Universal.[9][10] L'any següent va canviar per la Triangle on s'hi va estar fins a finals del 1918. Cap al 1920 havia aparegut en a la vora de 200 entre pel·lícules d'una o dues bobines i llargmetratges. Entre el 1920 i el 1929 va continuar apareguent en unes 6-8 pel·lícules per any. Es va especialitzar sobretot en papers de mare. Entre les seves pel·lícules més recordades hi ha Ben-Hur, The Mark of Zorro (1920) i La gran desfilada. Amb l'arribada del sonor va realitzar sobretot només papers menors sense aparèixer moltes vegades en els crèdits de la pel·lícula. Va morir a Hollywood el 23 d'octubre de 1966.
