TV star, Jessica Walter has passed away at the age of eighty years.
The ‘Arrested Development’ actress died on Wednesday, March 24, in her New York home, her daughter, Brooke Bowman said in a statement.
“It is with a heavy heart that I confirm the passing of my beloved mom, Jessica.”
“A working actor for over six decades, her greatest pleasure was bringing joy to others through her storytelling both on screen and off. 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,” Bowman said.
Jessica Walter won an Emmy in 1975 for portraying San Francisco’s first female chief of detectives in the limited series Amy Prentiss (the character was introduced on Ironside) and was nominated three others times, the last in 2005 for her delicious turn as the manipulative Lucille Bluth on Arrested Development. (She started on the series in 2003.)
