“I studied with Suzanne as a young actor. She saw in me what I could not yet see in myself. She introduced me to my husband. She was the officiant to our marriage under a beautiful gazebo in Central Park with a gathering of family and friends. For this, I will always be grateful. She was a huge presence. A BIG personality. She roared with life and at it.”
She played Karen’s mother in Goodfellas, and Mary DeAngelis in The Sopranos, along with roles in projects like Lolita, Uncle Buck and Mystic Pizza.
