RIP Jean Stapleton

All in the Family' Star Jean Stapleton Dies at 90

I remember seeing her on talk shows (probably Dinah Shore, Mike Douglas etc.) during the 70's when I was a kid and being stunned by how different she was from her TV character.

A great lady, a great actress. I should probably do All In The Family next for my 100 Things Meme.

Before I ever saw All in the Family, I knew and loved Jean Stapleton as Lady Emily Farnsworth on Scarecrow and Mrs. King, a role which really let her stretch her wings, since the character was a secret agent with a talent for disguise. Still one of my favorite recurring characters on that show, even if she did only appear in two episodes.

Sad to hear she's gone. :-( But it sounds like at least she had a long, full life.

:( Funny enough, the role I'm thinking of right this minute is from that movie she made with John Travolta as an angel and how she went dancing with him.

Yes, I was surprised at what a normal voice she actually had.
