Edith Roberts (born Edith Josephine Kohn; September 17, 1899 – August 20, 1935) was an American silent film actress from New York City. She was a child performer in vaudeville before she came to Hollywood in 1915. Among her more than 150 screen credits are roles in Seven Keys to Baldpate (1925), Big Brother (1923), The Wagon Master (1929), and The Mystery Club (1926). Her final film role was in Two O'Clock in the Morning (1929).[citation needed]


Roberts was married to Harold "Nick" Carter. She died at age 35 from sepsis at the Hollywood Hospital in 1935, shortly after giving birth to a son, Robert, her only child. A Christian Science memorial service was conducted at the chapel at Hollywood Cemetery, Los Angeles, California. Her sister was the actress Leona Roberts, and she was an aunt of Josephine Hutchinson.
