Enid Lorimer joined Herbert Tree’s theatre in London, but came to Australia in 1923 after the breakdown of her marriage, which did not survive the trauma of the Great War. In Sydney, she taught speech, diction and dramatics at the Garden School run by theosophists. She later returned to professional acting on radio. When television was introduced to Australia, her face became familiar to viewers nationwide as she appeared in a series of grandmotherly roles.
