Born in Helena, Montana, Loy was raised in rural Radersburg throughout her early childhood, before relocating to Los Angeles with her mother in her early adolescence.
She was originally typecast in exotic roles, often as a vamp or a woman of Asian descent, but her career prospects improved greatly following her portrayal of Nora Charles in The Thin Man (1934).
Here I am, just testing the waters to see who is out there.
I really enjoy meeting people in the real world but am giving online a try, AGAIN!! I'd like to find that beautiful type of relationship where life can be shared on a deeper level. IM INTO YOUNGER WOMEN 25 SO IF YOU LIKE OLDER WOMEN GIVE ME A SHOT.... Witty, humorous, sarcastic, cute, intelligent, fun lesbian whom I can get to know and vice versa who I can be completely and utterly silly with, i enjoy.
Rambova hired Loy for a small but showy role opposite Nita Naldi in What Price Beauty? Shot in May 1925, the film remained unreleased for three years; but stills of Loy in her exotic makeup and costume appeared in Motion Picture magazine and led to a contract with Warner Bros.
There, her surname was changed from Williams to Loy.
She was discovered by production designer Natacha Rambova, who helped facilitate film auditions for her, and she began obtaining small roles in the late 1920s, mainly portraying vamps.
