Brutally's picture

Actress Marian Seldes has died. She is being portrayed as a broadway legend. However, she also had a decent film career. In fact, her career dates back to the 1950s when she worked on a documentary titled "The Lonely Night" before landing a role in Robert Wagner's "The True Story of Jesse James."

In the 1960s and '70s, Seldes continued making occasional appearances on the big screen as well as taking numerous TV roles. She was a part of a 1965 movie on the story of Jesus Christ titled "The Greatest STory Ever Told" alongside Charleton Heston. After this role, she went on to join Harvey Keitel for the 1978 film "Fingers."

In the 1980s and '90s, her career continued. We most recently saw her on the big screen for a family movie released in 2011 titled "Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life."

Marian will be best known for her stage work. However, her face is recognized by film fans as well. Seldes died this week at the age of 86 in New York City.
