Louise Fletcher


Born - 22 July 1934, Birmingham, Alabama, USA
Died - 23 September 2022

Tall, honey-blonde, square-faced American actress of stern and forthright manner. Born Estelle Louise Fletcher to deaf parents, she acted steadily on TV from the late 1950s, but left acting from 1964 to raise her family, returning 10 years later to grab her two best film roles, in Thieves Like Us (1974) and as the dastardly Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975), which won her the best actress Oscar. But she was dropped from Nashville (1975) after her divorce from the film's producer, and kept a lower profile for the rest of her career: Russian Roulette (1975), Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977), The Cheap Detective (1978), The Lady in Red (1979), Brainstorm (1981), Strange Invaders (1983), Invaders from Mars (1985), Nobody's Fool (1986), Flowers in the Attic (1987), Blue Steel (1989), Shadowzone (1990), The Player (1992), Virtuosity (1995), Mulholland Falls (1996), A Map of the World (1999), Very Mean Men (2000), Manna from Heaven (2002), Clipping Adam (2004), Fat Rose and Squeaky (2006), The Last Sin Eater (2007), The Genesis Code (2009), Cassadaga (2011), A Perfect Man (2013), her last, and others. She died from natural causes.
