She's Only 15 By PAUL HARRISON HOLLYWOOD, April 17--You are not likely to find many 15-year-olds with the poise and assurance of Olympe Bradna. In fact, unless you know the whole story, you are likely to be very dubious indeed that Miss Bradna is only 15. j It seems that she has been on the j ' t c j j n i ^ i / i ^ f c - i i i / i j L l n . . 1 "-· j stage 14 years, has been a featured Olympe speaks belter English point performer in a number of big music- most foreign actresses, has trouped over most of i occasionally into a m i x t u r e of Europe, bought and sold a house Paris, played in three motion pic- tures in France, and now is in wood to become a singing, dancing, acrobatic and dramatic actress. "Always in the circus there was Bradnas." said Olympe. "I do not knorv how many years--12 families (generations), my papa has said. wass a rider' in the circus, and Uncle Fred Bradna iss a long now the ringmaster for Barnum Bailey, and my a u n t iss an trienne, and you have seen her the white horse and the pigeons the center ring. Yes? Started Young "When I wass born, my papa not in the circus, but had a dog act on 7,e--I mean, the--stage, and they called me Olympe because I wass born while the act wass playing the Olympic theater in Paris. j "My m a m m a had been an singer, and she wns.s in z e -- t h and when I wass at 18 m o n t into her makeup in the dressing \ room and smeared my face all with wnh red and followed the 12 dogs all standing on their hind legs right out on the stage. It wass n big and they put me in the act. and after that I came out behind the j dogs carrying a bceg French flag."
