He provided her with professional acting and dancing lessons, grooming her to become his leading star from 1918-26. She apparently spurned her mentor's offer of marriage. She retired from films in 1926 to marry an investment banker, Edwin Larsen, in 1929.|

Griffith's stock company--particularly Lillian Gish, Dorothy Gish, Miriam Cooper and Mae Marsh--detested her because she mimicked their acting styles rather than developing a style of her own. This resentment grew when Griffith--who had become obsessed with Dempster--turned away from his stock actresses because he thought he now had a little bit of all of them wrapped up in one package.|
