Née Christabel Hulme Hart, the Honourable Mrs. John Russell is credited with writing the scenario for Afraid of Love (1925). The film, in which she plays the part of Rosamund Bond, is said to be based on her own experience of married life.

In 1918, Christabel married the Honourable Mr John Hugo Russell (later 3rd Baron Ampthill). Her husband petitioned for divorce twice, in 1922 and 1923, on account of her adultery, and misconduct was alleged as early as one month after their wedding. The marriage ended in divorce in 1931.
