Actor Vera Ralston

Vera Ralston

  • Birth name:

    Vera Helena Hruba

  • Date of Birth:

    Prague, Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic)

  • Height:

    5' 5" (1.65 m)


After achieving modest fame as an ice skater, Vera Hruba was brought to America by Republic Pictures head Herbert Yates who hoped to turn her into the next Sonja Henie. After featuring her in several Ice Capade movies, he added Ralston to her name and tried to pass her off as a leading lady. Hruba's English was so limited she was forced to learn her lines phonetically. Her English improved, and directors said she tried hard to learn her craft, but bad acting and a thick accent left her hard for audiences to accept.
