Marian Ann Waldman (16 December 1924 – 5 July 1985) was a Canadian actress. She was also a veteran stage actress for Toronto for many decades of her career.

Biographie

Waldman was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to a professor mother and a physician father. Waldman was an Ashkenazi Jew. She began her career as a stage actress while working around the Toronto area, during the 1950s, first as a choir girl, and later with a dramatic repertoire.

Marian's close friends and relatives had been known to call her "Pookie," as a term of endearment. In addition to her career as an actress, Waldman also enjoyed reading, traveling, various events around Toronto, astrology, and parties.

Knowledge of her personal life is rather limited, perhaps due to lack of sufficient information. Hopefully, a relative/close friend can provide more for this beloved character actress.


Career
After a successful run in live theatre, Waldman later became a film actress in the early 1970s, as well as an occasional television screenwriter.

Most film fans will remember Waldman for her celebrated role as a foul-mouthed, but also endearing, closet drunkard housemother Mrs. MacHenry from the 1974 holiday horror classic, Black Christmas. The role was offered to Bette Davis, who turned it down.

In 2006, fellow Black Christmas cast mate Andrea Martin played the role of Mrs. Mac in the remake Black Christmas.


Death
Marian died on 5 July 1985, in her native Toronto, due to unknown causes.

Waldman's final on-screen appearance was in John Huston's 1980 film, Phobia.

Peter, a young boy, and Lucy, his goose, are the first to encounter them. Unable to find the true meaning of Christmas in town, Peter takes them to his family's house in the woods.

Pendant la période de Noël, dans une résidence étudiante de filles, quelques-unes des pensionnaires ne partent pas rejoindre leurs familles respectives pour les fêtes et restent sur place. Lors d'une soirée, de sordides appels téléphoniques anonymes troublent leur quiétude. Si elles préfèrent ne pas les prendre au sérieux dans un premier temps, une des leurs disparait mystérieusement, et le corps d'une adolescente est retrouvée non loin de là par la police. Certaines des pensionnaires se mettent à la recherche de leur amie, mais pendant ce temps, dans la résidence, les cadavres s'empilent, et la police demeure extrêmement incompétente. Alors que les étranges coups de fil perpétuent au beau milieu de ce remue-ménage, certaines des jeunes filles se retrouvent seules dans la résidence. Enfin, pas si seules que ça.
