RIP Rebecca Isabelle “Carla” Laemmle (October 20, 1909 – June 12, 2014)
Carla was one of the few surviving actors of the silent film era and the niece of Universal Pictures studio founder Carl Laemmle.
In Dracula (1931) she had an uncredited role as bespectacled passenger riding in a bumpy horse-drawn carriage with Renfield as he is traveling to Dracula’s castle. In the David Skal’s documentary for the DVD release of Dracula, Laemmle proudly states: "I had the privilege of speaking the first lines of dialogue in the first talking supernatural thriller".
