Actress. She played Mrs. Kintner in the films “Jaws” (1975) and “Jaws: The Revenge” (1987). It is reported that the well-known scene in “Jaws” where she slapped the police chief was finalized after several ‘takes.’ She had objected to some of the profane language in the scene and it was rewritten the day before it was filmed. She also appeared in “The Mistover Tale” (2016). For many years, she lived on Martha's Vineyard and from 1974 to 2017, she was artistic director of the Island Theatre Workshop and mentored aspiring actors. In 2013, she received a "Woman of the Year" award by Women Empowered to Make Healthy Choices for her local theater workshop.
