When you do a movie with me, you become part of my family. Over the years this family has grown into a very large one. Today our family lost one of our most bea...utiful elders. Marietta Marich was taken off life support this morning after complications from heart surgery.
Marietta was the truest definition of what being an actor really means. She dedicated decades of her life to stage and screen. Whether she was Mrs. Guggenhiem in Rushmore, or Luda Mae in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Aoife Muldoon in The broadway play, Outside Mullingar, or my personal favorite, Mrs. Anderson in House Of Good And Evil, the audience believed she was in fact those characters.
As a writer, one of the greatest honors is to write a line that is remembered by audiences. So much depends on the delivery by the actor.
Marietta, I will always be honored and grateful you delivered the following line exactly how I intended it.
"They're all monsters Maggie, the only difference is, they're in your bed instead of under it."
You will be missed.
Seriously though, who wore the hair bun best? Jennifer Lawrence, or Rae Olivier? https://creators.co/@hbhs/4366258
Interesting. Thanks Scott https://youtu.be/SYePuCpQgRA
I just got off the phone with Marietta Marich (Mrs. Anderson). She's in the thick of the flooding in Houston. She's remarkably calm considering the water is rising out her front door. I asked her how she could be so calm and she simply replied "I'm too damn old to worry about what Mother Nature has in store for me, how are your wife and kids?." We love you Marietta and you're in our thoughts. Stay tough and stay safe everyone in Harvey's path.
