Sylvia Ashton (26 January 1880 – 17 November 1940) was an American film actress of the silent era. She appeared in 134 films between 1912 and 1929.[1] She was born in Denver, Colorado and died in Los Angeles, California. She bore a heavyset resemblance to Jane Darwell and like Darwell was playing mother and grandmother roles, though more famously than Darwell in the silents, while still in her 30s and 40s.[2] For years she was a regular member of Cecil B. DeMille's troupe of character actors. She retired from movies almost immediately at the dawn of sound, one of her last films being the part-talkie, The Barker (1928).
