19 December 1905

Cecilia "Cissy" Loftus in the first London revival of Peter Pan in December 1905. Cissy was an accomplished ventriloquist, and it was with her in mind that Barrie wrote the mermaid's lagoon sequence in which Peter throws his voice and speaks for Captain Hook. She was also the first actress to declare "To die will be an awfully big adventure!"
