She married Scottish Laird Ian Bullough on the 24th March, 1909 but sadly died in 1910 after complications following an operation for an appendicitis.
The Edwardian actress starred as Victoria Siddons in The Gay Gordons, at the Aldwych Theatre, London, on 11 September 1907.  Darrell also played Victoria Siddons during the London run and again on the UK tour during 1908.  Maudi also starred in The Beauty of Bath, The things you never learn at school and The frolic of the breeze.

I often wonder about the colours and fabrics of these fabulous Victorian and Edwardian dresses, these black and white postcards just don’t show the outfits in their true rich colours.
