Biographical Notes in German: Schauspielerin des amerikanischen Stummfilms in einigen Filmen von David Wark Griffith. Wenige Jahre nach Carols Geburt zog die Familie nach Kalifornien, und Carol wurde an der Ruth St. Denis Tanzschule ausgebildet. Griffith wurde auf sie aufmerksam und engagierte sie für eine kleine Rolle als Tänzerin für die babylonische Sequenz seines monumentalen Epos "Intolerance".
In der Folge versuchte Griffith sie als "Nachfolgerin" von Lilian Gish aufzubauen, ein Versuch, der beim Publikum weitgehend fehlschlug. Sie war keine zweite Gish, dennoch zeigen viele ihrer Rollen aus den frühen Zwanziger Jahren durchaus komödiantischen Qualitäten. In dieser Zeit bestand auch ein engeres persönliches Verhältnis zu dem 25 Jahre älteren Regisseur Griffith.
Neben "The Love Flower" (1920) ist Carol bemerkenswert in "Isn't Life Wonderful?" (1924) und vor allem ihrem letzten Film "The Sorrows of Satan" (1926), als Partnerin von Ricardo Cortez und Adolphe Menjou.
Danach zog sich Carol Dempster vom Kino zurück, 1929 heiratete sie den Bankier Edwin Larsen und trat nie mehr auf. Carol starb am 1. Februar 1991 an Herzversagen.
