American actress Frances Sterngagen has died at the age of 94. She was called a veteran of the stage, as her career lasted 63 years, 50 of which she performed on Broadway.
Viewers know Sterngagen well as the performer of the role of Bunny McDougal in the cult TV series Sex and the City. She played Charlotte's bitchy mother-in-law, who tormented Kristin David's character with her unbearable temper. The death of the actress was confirmed by her son John Carlin, who dedicated a touching post to his mother on Instagram.
Sterngren passed away of natural causes in New Rochelle, New York, on November 27. The deceased's son showed her archival black and white photos, as well as relatively recent footage.
"She was loved by many people. I was very fortunate to be able to call her my mom, my friend, my song and dance partner. We were together last week, and we talked on Monday afternoon, said how much we loved and missed each other. I was about to board a plane to London when I got the news... She always encouraged me to write songs and loved it when I sang. Fly, Franny. The curtain falls on a life lived so long, passionately, humbly and generously," wrote son Francis Sternagen.
As we've already noted, the actress is best known for her role as mother-in-law Charlotte York in the TV series Sex and the City.
However, Frances Sterngagen has many other successful projects in her filmography. This is evidenced, among other things, by her awards. The actress has been nominated for a Tony Award seven times and won it twice: for her role in the 1995 production of The Heiress and for several roles in The Good Doctor. In addition, the star was nominated twice for an Emmy. For the aforementioned role in Sex and the City, as well as for her role as Esther Clevin in the NBC project Cheers.
Frances raised six children, which was also one of the greatest achievements of her life.
