Verree Teasdale (March 15, 1903 – February 17, 1987) was an American actress born in Spokane, Washington.
A second cousin of Edith Wharton, Teasdale attended Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn and trained as a stage actress at the New York School of Expression. She first appeared on Broadway in 1924 and performed there regularly until 1932.
After co-starring in Somerset Maugham's play The Constant Wife with Ethel Barrymore in 1926-27, she was offered a film contract, and her first film, Syncopation, was released in 1929. Teasdale appeared older than her physical age, which enabled her to play bored society wives, scheming other women and second leads in comedies such as Eddie Cantor's Roman Scandals (1933). In 1935 she played Hippolyta in Max Rheinhardt's A Midsummer Night's Dream and both her bored and sneering looks to Theseus's blandishments brought life and colour to this often bland and minor role.
