L. was born in 1885 in Bucharest, Rumania.
At the age of fifteen he
traveled to Bukovina. Here she befriended Malvina
Treitler (later -- Lobel), the daughter of the then
guest-starring Yiddish theatre director, and through
her became excited about the stage. Thanks to her
beautiful voice and figure, she became a soubrette.
Later L. traveled with the troupe to London, where she
crossed over to serious roles. Here she married the
actor Yozefson, acting from then under her new family
name, and she then traveled with her husband to Argentina where
they acted for several seasons. From there [kern] they
went back to London and Paris, and after her husband's
death, L. settled in London where she acted in dramatic
roles under the direction of Morris Moshkovitsh, Zigmunt
Feinman, Charles Nathanson and Joseph Kessler.
