THERE’S Something About Mary actress Markie Post, 70, has died after a lengthy battle with cancer, says her manager.
Fans have been paying tribute to the hard-working star, who was also on Night Court, The Fall Guy, The Incredible Hulk, Hart to Hart and Netflix show Santa Clarita Diet.
Post appeared regularly on NBC’s Night Court, acting as public defender Christine Sullivan for 159 episodes between 1985 and 1992, reports Deadline.
The website says that her manager, Ellen Lubin Sanitsky, confirmed her passing after Post died on Saturday, after a nearly four-year battle against cancer.
Post’s family said in a statement: “For us, our pride is in who she was in addition to acting; a person who made elaborate cakes for friends, sewed curtains for first apartments and showed us how to be kind, loving and forgiving in an often harsh world.”
‘Heartbroken’ fan Vic Sage tweeted: “Rest in Peace: Markie Post (1950 – 2021).”
