From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Ida Waterman was a stage and screen actress. Waterman was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She appeared in some thirty or more Broadway productions between the late 1880s and early 1920s. She played Elise Claremont in the 1889 farce-comedy Our Flat and the following year Mrs. Kirke in Men and Women opposite Maude Adams. In 1899 she was Mrs. Crawley in Becky Sharp (later made into the 1934 film Becky Sharp) and in 1922 closed out her Broadway career playing Mrs. French in Lawful Larceny. Waterman was popular in numerous silent films in the teens and twenties as a supporting elderly actress much like Kate Lester. After decades of being a Victorian and Edwardian stage actress, Waterman moved into silent films in the 1910s. She died in 1941 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
