The representative continued: “I’ve met many talented actors, but Mary was one of the best. Her attitude on life was different, and she had a great sense of humor. She was the first performer I ever saw in Mad Forest in 1992, and I can still clearly recall it. She was unquestionably alluring, adored, and will be missed.”
