Actress Jane Baxter spent most of her career in British films and on-stage. Born Feodora Forde in Bremen, Germany, she was raised in London, England, from a young age. At age 15, Baxter launched a successful theatrical career in the musical Love's Prisoner. She made her premiere film appearance in Bed and Breakfast (1930). After finding similar success in cinema, Baxter headed for Hollywood in the mid-'30s. She made two films there, We Live Again (1934) and Enchanted April (1935). Though she was romantically entangled with Ronald Colman, Baxter hated American life and so went back to London to resume her film career. From the '50s onward, Baxter would make periodic forays into television. During the 1970s, Baxter was a semi-regular on the acclaimed Upstairs/Downstairs.
