Seena Owen was born in Spokane, WA, on Nov. 14, 1894. Her first film was A Yankee from the West (1915) under the name of Signe Auen, when she was 21. The following year she appeared (as “Attarea”) in D.W. Griffith’s epic Intolerance: Love’s Struggle Throughout the Ages (1916). In 1919 she played Barbara Riggs in the well-received A Fugitive from Matrimony (1919). This very adept actress appeared in several quality films during her career. After Officer Thirteen (1932) she retired from the silver screen in 1933.
