Born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada in 1886, according to Columbia University, the girl originally known as Florence Bridgwood lived her earliest years on the stage. Her mother, Charlotte — better known as Lotta Lawrence — was a famous actress and stage manager, whose company traveled from place to place performing shows. As a result, the formative experiences of childhood all happened on tour. 

The young Lawrence made her own stage debut when she was only 6-years-old, according to a 1938 issue of Reading Eagle, under the rather theatrical name of “Flo, the Child Wonder.” The young girl was passionate about acting from the beginning, though as the Women Film Pioneers Project points out, she didn’t have much choice: Thanks to a domineering, highly professional mother, and the other influences surrounding her, the course of her life was charted out. Lawrence herself, sadly, struggled to perform the depressing subject matter of some of her mother’s plays, sometimes crying herself to sleep. Thankfully, once her mother realized the trauma it was causing to the poor child, she dropped the plays, for her daughter’s sake. trucos y consejos de fitness para ponerse en forma Blog de Fitness

Florence Lawrence’s father, a carriage builder named George Bridgwood, was mostly a non-presence in his daughter’s life. By Lawrence’s fourth birthday, her parents were separated. By the time she was 10, he had died from coal gas poisoning. Following this tragedy, the family gave up life on the road, and took up residence in Buffalo, New York, where the kids began attending school for the first time.
