“Arrested Development” Star Jessica Walter Passes

US-ENTERTAINMENT-ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT

Jessica Walter has died. The 80-year-old passed away in her sleep at her home in New York City on Wednesday. Her daughter confirmed her death in statement. “A working actor for over six decades, her greatest pleasure was bringing joy to others through her storytelling both on screen and off,” her daughter, Brooke Bowman, said. “While her legacy will live on through her body of work, she will also be remembered by many for her wit, class and overall joie de vivre.”

Walter – who had over 150 acting credits in her career – made her mark in TV, movies, and the stage. She especially enjoyed playing women described by the New York Times as “off-center women capable of silencing men with a withering glance, a piercing remark, or the sharp point of a knife.” Her big break came in 1971 in “Play Misty for Me,” alongside Clint Eastwood and Donna Mills. In later years, she was best known for playing Lucille Bluth on “Arrested Development.”
