"Virginia Harned (May 29, 1868 - April 29, 1946), born Virginia Hicks, was a noted American stage actress at the turn of the 20th century. She is mainly remembered for playing the title character in the 1895 Broadway premiere of the play Trilby based on George Du Maurier's novel of the same name. It is Harned's likeness from the play that is grafted onto the cover of original 1895 publications of the novel.
Her second husband was E. H. Sothern, who later married Julia Marlowe, and her third husband was actor William Courtenay, who appeared on stage with her several times and who left her a widow in 1933."
