Born Franklin Bryant Washburn (April 28, 1889 – April 30, 1963) Bryant Washburn was an American film actor. He appeared in 375 films between 1911 and 1947.


The brunette actress-wife of silent screen matinee-idol Bryant Washburn, Mabel Forrest played a couple of leading roles in programmers in the early ’20s, including three with her husband: Other Men’s Daughters, Mine to Keep, and The Love Trap (all 1923). She later worked on the stage, played bits in such films as Hollywood Boulevard (1936; again with Bryant Washburn), and appeared on such television series as The Twilight Zone and Petticoat Junction. Her son, Bryant Washburn Jr. (1915-1960), played bit parts in films of the 1930s. ~ Hans J. Wollstein.
