Need a bitter, cynical old woman? Jessica Walter is your lady!

Jessica Walter (born January 31, 1941 in Brooklyn, New York) was born in big ol' Brooklyn, daughter of Esther and David Walter. She grew up in Queens, where she attended Manhattan's High School of Performing Arts and graduated from there.

She is known in the current generation as the (hilariously) cold and cruel matriarch Lucille Bluth in Arrested Development and playing the just as cruel and cold (and hilarious) head of ISIS Mallory Archer in the FX Series Archer, both having little differences. In older generations, she was known to be in a multitude of film and television series.
