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!!!
For this Mary Monday, which is also President Day, I could not exempt myself from posting some Laura Roslin related content, and since our precious María Traver had recently sent me photos from some magazine she bought at conventions, I thought it was a perfect choice for the day. Take a look and enjoy!
Mary McDonnell is the consummate American film, stage, and television actress, a two-time Oscar-nominee known for portraying powerful and complex female characters. By melding vulnerability and strength, she has created distinctive characters on Broadway (the title role in the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Heidi Chronicles), in films (Stands With a Fist in Dances with Wolves) and on TV (President Laura Roslin on “Battlestar Galactica”).
Earning an Emmy nomination on TNT’s “The Closer,” McDonnell continued her portrayal of Commander Sharon Raydor, a woman navigating leadership in the male-dominated field of law enforcement for six seasons on the hit spin-off, “Major Crimes.”

Hello everyone and welcome the audio section of the site, a place to collect all audio interviews (no video, no image) Mary did during the years. This was such a valuable and good section from Mostly Mary that I needed to find a way to import into the site and gladly I managed to create a small corner for it.
You can find the audios separated by years, with title, reference article if any as well as the original poster one.
Hope you find it useful and like, take a look and enjoy!
And here we are to the 7th and last day of the Birthday Celebration of Mary McDonnell Vault. This has been another year of fun and love and I appreciate all the messages and wishes, nothing of this would be possible if there wasn’t Mary obviously but you too, you all make this place the special thing it is to me, so million thanks for always visiting, supporting and sharing.
Today’s post is an additional album of an old convention, it seems that Mary had already been in Birmingham at the MCM in 2009 and here are photos that Dorthe Hansen kindly shared exclusively with MMV. Please do not repost or use for fanart.
Since I didn’t have a clear date for these, they are all in the same album (but from different days) and I gave it a generical date, based on this recap video (Mary appears at 1.45).
Thanks to Michael S. Müller, we have now more beautiful pictures of Mary during her days at the 2008 convention of FedCon in Bonn. Take a look and enjoy! Please do not repost them or use for fanarts. Thank you!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
This 5th day of gifts is a beautiful set of additional photos to the DragonCon in Atlanta from 2009, donated by Dyveke Korn. Please do not repost them or use for fanarts. Thank you!
2018 is leaving us, and I thought to get out of it with a BANG and in theme with the remaining 2018 photos I’m left to add. The vast majority of these come from my wonderful friend Sara Christelle, with whom I got to share this incredible experience that was FedCon, my first time meeting Mary and what a wonderful time with friends.
Enjoy these and see you all next year with a new gift!!!
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.
