Welcome to Mary McDonnell Vault, your online resource dedicated to actress Mary McDonnell. You better know Mary for her role as Captain Sharon Raydor for the TNT crime series The Closer & Major Crimes. But she also did others like Battlestar Galactica, Independence Day, Donnie Darko, Dances with Wolves, Sneakers and many others. Site is comprehensive of a big photogallery with events, photoshoots, magazines, stills, a media archive dedicated to all fans fanarts on Mary, an extensive press library to collect all the articles and interviews on her and a video gallery section for recorded interviews, sneak peeks and trailers of her projects. We claim no rights to know her personally and it's absolutely respectful of her privacy and paparazzi-free!!!
And as another day goes by, the third of the birthday week celebration, I add new/old pictures. New as I never had them before, but from an old event: SFBall 15 from 2009, donated exclusively for MMV by Dorthe Hansen and Michael S. Müller.
A little funny story linked to this event: looking around for dates I found several testimonies laughing about Mary’s joke of entering to the stage, on closing ceremony, with her arm in a sling, justifying it that she has been signing autographs all day and her arm needed to rest. part of this sling is nothing else than her own scarf and a Rosling ’08 t-shirt she had been given! 😀
Welcome to the second day of gifts for the 4th anniversary of Mary McDonnell Vault. Today is dedicated to the addition of completely new event that wasn’t in the gallery before: DragonCon 2011. These photos have been donated exclusively to MMV by Dorthe Hansen.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARY MCDONNELL VAULT!
It’s that time of the year, when it’s coming to an end, that we celebrate another anniversary of this fansite. Today it’s 4 years since its opening and it’s been a blast and a marvellous experience, I could never imagine to get this far and have this much fun with you all. Like any previous year, I won’t leave you without gifts this one too, and because this is a place for fans, this 4th birthday will be celebrated for the next 7 days with photos from various conventions Mary attended all over the world and in different years and all donated by the fans.
Today we start from the most recent, MCM Birmingham (November 2018) and all exclusively donated to MMV by Julia, Maria & Nicole. Enjoy!
And because it’s a Shandy Sunday I couldn’t not update with wedding photos, that moment that many of us waited for many many episodes before (like back into The Closer times!). Enjoy them in HQ and a few additions on various episodes too.
I have post-poned this for quite a while, as you can imagine why, but if I don’t do it now it won’t ever happen. So for a Sharon Saturday I decided to work on season 5, upgrading the quality of some stills and adding more missing images to the gallery. Take a look!
Oh frak! @MaryMcDonnell10 is joining us at #ECCC Saturday & Sunday. Get ready to meet one of the greatest Galactic Presidents, Doctors, and PD Captains we know! Sunday tickets still available here: https://t.co/yHCibLmdRm #BSG pic.twitter.com/EdWfCBadbr

And I told you the fun wasn’t over. Our own very special Silvia sent in some pictures from the panel which ended just a few ago. Take a look!
And as the first day of MCM Comic Con in Birmingham passed, some fans kindly donated some photos they took a the Live Stage Panel that Mary did. Unfortunately there’s no video available of it yet, but hopefully the con people will put one up at later time.
So for now, much thanks to Silvia, Julia and Melanie for donating their pictures to the fansite.
If taking any PLEASE credit. Thank you!
Back in 1989, Mary guest-starred in a show called A Man Called Hawk, a show developping around this man Hawk who’s called to protect and help those in need. In the 5th episode of season 5, Mary plays Mrs. Kirkpatrick.
I added screencaptures – sorry for the poor quality but that’s all I could find – to the gallery and a couple of clips to the video archive. Enjoy!
The Kirkpatricks hire Hawk to protect their family after the attempted kidnapping of their son. Hawk’s job is made harder when their son tries to understand why a kidnapping attempt was made.
