Magda Foy (1905-2000), also known and often credited as "The Solax Kid", was a child actor in the silent film era who worked for Solax Studio, the largest pre-Hollywood studio in the United States from 1910 to 1913.
Magda Foy was born on July 13, 1905 in Manhattan, New York to Mary and Patrick Foy as Magdelena Patricia Foy. She died on February 2, 2000 in Port Jefferson, New York.
Foy, along with her parents, was a member of the Solax stock company and she appeared in 23 of the studio's films. She often was directed by Alice Guy-Blaché, the founder of Solax and its artistic director. Foy played the lead in A Child's Sacrifice (1910), the first film produced by Solax. She was cast in leading and minor roles, and portrayed both girls and boys. Her last film, Man's Woman (1917), made independent of Solax Studios, was directed by Travers Vale.
One of Foy's better known roles was that of Little Trixie Thompson, the lead character in Falling Leaves. The film cast Magda as a young girl who, overhearing the doctor say that her elder sister will die of tuberculosis before the last leaf falls, determines to save her by tying the leaves onto the trees outside their home.
