A native of Capetown, South Africa, actress Sybil Jason appeared in several American films during the 1930s. She made her debut as a child in the British film Barnacle Bill in the early 1930s. A talented girl, Warner Brothers signed a contract and brought her to Hollywood in 1935 in hopes of usurping the reign of the town's current little princess Shirley Temple. Unfortunately, Jason, despite her considerable abilities, failed to capture American hearts and ended up relegated to small roles in Temple films. She temporarily relocated to South Africa following The Blue Bird, but by then WWII had broken out. When it finally ended, and Jason returned to America, she was well on her way to adulthood and had diffculty reviving her initial screen popularity. Instead, she married, started a family, and authored two musical shows and - eventually - an autobiography. Jason died in August 2011.
