User comments for Vesta
Vesta Tilley (1864 - 1952) was one of the highest paid vaudeville performers of her day. She was a world-renowed male impersonator, most famous for playing (with a satirical bent) the roles of somewhat foppish young men. During WWI, Vesta and her family helped considerably with the war effort, running a recruitment drive, selling war bonds, and performing in hospitals. Her husband was knighted for his services. Vesta Tilley was actually her stage name, Tilley as a nickname for Matilda, and Vesta from a brand of safety matches.
On Sailor Moon, VesVes of the Amazon Quartet's name is derived from this.
On the TV show 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' Vesta is said to be Aunt Hilda and Aunt Zelda's other sister. So that makes her Sabrina's other aunt.
In the movie She-Devil, Roseanne Barr's character changes her name to Vesta Rose when she tries to destroy her husband's life.
Vesta is the name of one of the main characters in Alex Marwood's crime novel "The Killer Next Door."
