Lanchester is credited with over 100 roles in front of the camera with dozens of characters on the big screen and two decades of television work for various shows. Lanchester was hand picked by her friend, and the director of Frankenstein (1931) and The Invicible Man (1933), James Whale - to specifically portray the role of The Bride and Mary Shelley for The Bride of Frankenstein. Lanchester played the role with brilliance through painful costumes of wrapped bandages and heavy makeup, her eyes kept taped up for long periods of time, and the famous long hair combed over a wire mesh cage.
