Mabel Taliaferro alias Nell, born Maybelle Evelyn Taliaferro (May 21, 1887 - January 24, 1979) was an American stage, and a silent screen actress, known as "the Sweetheart of American Movies". Taliaferro descended from one of the early families who settled in Virginia in the 17th century, the Taliaferros, whose origins are to be traced in Northern Italy.

In 1912, she appeared in the Selig Studios film version of "Cinderella", and she continued performing in films through her retirement in 1921. In 1940, she appeared in her final picture, "My Love Came Back". Taliaferro was a sister of film and stage actress Edith Taliaferro and the cousin of actress Bessie Barriscale.
