Jessica Walter

Friday, 31st January 1941
Brooklyn, New York City, NY
USA


Someone once said "an actress I've never felt comfortable about since Play Misty for Me", a film that did the same for her career as Psycho did for Anthony Perkins. Pity. Luckily in later years she made a cottage industry out of playing memorably pushy, narcissistic mothers (Arrested Development, Archer).
