Born as Mary Allgood and known as "Molly", she had been engaged to Irish playwright John Millington Synge before his death. Her elder sister was actress Sara Allgood.

She died in Park Prewett Hospital at Basingstoke, England, on 2 November 1952, aged 67, where she was receiving treatment after being badly burned in a fire at her London home, although IMDb reports her place of death as Belfast. [1]
