Violet La Plante

Violet La Plante, also known as Violet Avon (born Violet LaPlant; January 17, 1908 – June 1, 1984) was an American silent film actress.


Violet La Plante, born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, was the younger sister of future Hollywood star Laura La Plante, and started acting in the early 1920s, adapting her surname to "LaPlante", like her sister. Her first film was in 1924, starring opposite Buddy Roosevelt, in Battling Buddy. She starred in four films in 1924. The following year she made just one film, but was included in the "WAMPAS Baby Stars" (at the time, baby star was common slang for starlet). Her sister Laura was a 1923 "WAMPAS Baby Stars".

Despite the "WAMPAS Baby Star" title, she would never achieve the same level of success as her sister. In 1926 and 1927 she would star in only one film for each year, then in 1928 she would have only two films. Her career ended before the advent of "talking films", with her last role being in the 1928 film How to Handle Women.

She eventually settled in La Jolla, California, where she lived at the time of her death on June 1, 1984, aged 76, from undisclosed causes.
