Biography

Ashton was born in Denver, Colorado. 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. For years she was a regular member of Cecil B. DeMille's troupe of character actors. She appeared in 134 films between 1912 and 1929. She retired from movies almost immediately at the dawn of sound, one of her last films being the part-talkie, The Barker (1928). She died in Los Angeles, California.
