Daphne Pollard - Rotten Tomatoes

Daphne Pollard



Apparently no relation to fellow Australian comic Snub Pollard (born Fraser) as is often reported, diminutive, four-foot-nine Daphne Pollard was born Daphne Trott. A member of Melbourne's Pollard Lilliputian Opera Company, she made her New York debut in 1908 in Mr. Hamlet of Broadway and went on to enjoy a long stint in vaudeville and English music halls. By the late '20s, she was appearing in Mack Sennett comedies but is perhaps better remembered for her work for rival Hal Roach, who cast her as Oliver Hardy's shrewish wife in both Thicker Than Water (1935) and Our Relations (1936). Naturally, she made the most of their difference in size.
