Dolores Cassinelli 1912

“I’ve been an actress for only three months….it seems like yesterday that I came to this big city and started in doing ‘super’ parts for the Essanay Company. I had no previous experience, unless a fondness to impersonate every actress I had seen counted for anything. Everybody was most kind to me in the studio, and I always kept these thoughts before me: Look pretty, have all thoughts on what you are playing, and be all attention to the director….Now, you see, I am doing ‘second business,’ and have played everything from maids to leads.”Dolores Cassinelli in 1912
