Sothern’s film debut was on One of the Flames (1914) which was filmed at the Miller Brothers 101 Ranch. She was a seasoned actress by the time she made her Broadway debut in The Dagger (1925), followed by Arabesque and Fool’s Bells that same year. She next appeared in Mama Loves Papa (1926). During this time, she acted in plays across the U.S., including the theatre venues of downtown Los Angeles.

Sothern married art dealer Francis Lenn Taylor in 1926 in New York City. They were the parents of Howard Taylor (1929–2020), and the movie star Elizabeth Taylor (1932–2011). After marrying, she retired from the stage and never acted again.

After living in England several years, where her children were born, they returned to the United States. Living in Los Angeles, California, she devoted herself to her family and the movie career of her daughter. Sothern died at age 99 in Palm Springs, California.
