Take a look in the gallery and media archive for screencaptures and clips of Blue Chips, the movie from 1994 in which Mary played Jenny Bell.

MM: Well, there’s so many memories from that, but the one that always pops into my mind right away is standing on two or three apple boxes to be tall enough to work with Shaq. [Laughs.] I was playing his teacher, and it would’ve been so silly if he’d had to bend over that far to be at eye level with me. It would just look so hideous, talking up to him four feet. So they put me on all these apple boxes, and then someone would hold my hand so I wouldn’t fall off. The whole thing was great fun, though. And Nick Nolte is also a really gifted person, so it was great working with him, and, of course, Billy Friedkin is a brilliant director. I’ve gotten to work with him twice in my career, and I’m grateful.

AVC: How was Shaq as an actor? That was his first time taking a stab at it.
He was delightful, actually. He has a little performer in him, as we all know, and he availed himself to the job very sincerely, very openly. He’s got good instincts. So I found him delightful.

AVC: How was the experience of doing the dramatic ER?
The dramatic ER was fantastic. It was such an interesting character, one that was very short-lived but was very powerful nonetheless. And I do love Noah Wyle, so it was very easy to step into playing his mother and understanding him as that entity. It was quite wonderful. I loved it.

For All Time is a wonderful intense and some parts sad but beautiful story of a man trapped into a world he doesn’t feel to belong to and when the woman of his dreams becomes a reality, a reality from the past, he might want to change life style… and year… and century to be with her and live happy! Mary plays the role of Laura Brown, that dream woman that takes life from his drawing and catch his attention with a smile. The movie is itself very beautiful, very intense, at times you wish to yell at tv for what’s happening and others your heart just melts. Very much suggested!

A huge thank you to our partner-in-crime friend Julia from @MaryFreakinMcDonnell, for the beautiful big screencaptures she made for us. And take a look in the archive for 4 clips from the movie.

Hello MaryGirls. Because we didn’t have much official photos (or video) from Mary’s spotlight Sunday, some of the girls who were in Chicago sent me some of their shots, and I encourage anyone who wants to do the same, I’d be happy to add those. These were donated by Kadi and Chell. And Chell also donated some shots from the Saturday’s panel, check them out on the gallery.
