Among the many role which Mary played, all with the same passion and dedication, was also the one of Jules O’Grady from the TV-Show That’s Life. Jules is a single parent who became a mother in her teen age and has a very difficult relationship with her daughter Jackie and also with alcohol and smoking. In both episodes she guest starred it’s evident how Jules wished her relationship was different but a little bit of pride and the influence of alcohol are making it very difficult to happen.

Enjoy the screencaptures, one behind the scenes picture and clips from both of them.

It has been a while since I posted screencaptures and clips from a TV movie Mary starrred in and today I picked The Locket, in which she played Helen Staples, perhaps for a vicinity of mine towards nursing homes, but also because it is a great movie starring Chad Willett, Marguerite Moreau and the timeless Vanessa Redgrave.
Mary’s part was of a certain impact. She’s not the protagonist but brought a beautiful touch to the scenes, and a whiteness that touch my heart.
Enjoy the screencaptures and the clips!

A young man taking care of his dying mother is distraught and grief-stricken when she finally passes away. On the advice of his doctor, he takes a job in an upscale nursing home, and is assigned to take care of an elderly woman named Esther. At first Esther is a bitter, angry woman and pushes him away, but as she gradually warms to him, he discovers that he and Esther have much more in common than he imagined.

In these quite times from news and photos I love finding old stuff that can be added to the gallery, and so is the case for this magazine scan from Parade from March 1993.
To simplify the reading for everyone I have transcribed the interview in our press archive.

There aren’t many pictures around really and I did what I could, but I’ll keep looking. Enjoy them!

“Major Crimes” star Mary McDonnell shares with Variety her thoughts on the show’s final season, which saw her character, Sharon Raydor, killed off.

I have been watching, reading and listening to the fans’ reactions to Sharon’s death, and it’s taken me a while to find the essence of my experience. I have been approached by several journalists, but in truth, I was not ready to speak until now.

The fan reaction to the death of Sharon Raydor has been sharply illuminating, deeply, deeply humbling, and a true confirmation of what Commander Raydor stood for. When all of this was in the planning stages, I was hoping we would be able to both announce the end of the series and give a gentle warning as to the death that was coming. My original understanding was that the arc was created as part of an impulse and strategy that revolved around staying in control of the narrative, as it was clear the show would be canceled, which of course it was.

What surprised and humbled me, and in a deeper sense than ever before, woke me to the incredible power of the medium, was the level of authentic grief that emerged after Sharon’s death. Many fans were truly saddened, angry, and overwhelmingly frustrated. I knew how much Sharon was loved. I knew she was a role model. What I hadn’t totally comprehended was how much importance she held as a symbol. And how her importance had grown since the election last year.
