Oscar winner and multiple Emmy winner Cloris Leachman has passed on at the age of 94.
The actress who is best remembered for playing the role of a lonely housewife in “The Last Picture Show” and a comedic delight as the fearsome Frau Blücher in “Young Frankenstein” and self-absorbed neighbor Phyllis on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” died in her sleep of natural causes at her home in Encinitas, California.
Her publicist, Monique Moss said Leachman’s daughter was by her side. Her longtime manager Juliet Green on the other hand said there was no one like her.
Green said in a statement;
“It’s been my privilege to work with Cloris Leachman, one of the most fearless actresses of our time.
“There was no one like Cloris. With a single look she had the ability to break your heart or make you laugh ’till the tears ran down your face. You never knew what Cloris was going to say or do and that unpredictable quality was part of her unparalleled magic.”
