Acting and comedy legend Jessica Walters, who famously played booze-loving matriarch Lucille Bluth in Arrested Development, has passed away in her sleep in her Manhattan home.
Stars of the show and comedy legends have paid tribute to Walters who died at the age of 80 with Jason Bateman leading the pack saying ‘I will forever remember my time with her’.
Henry Winkler, Tony Hale and Ron Howard all tweeted their respects for the star who had an acting resume as long as your arm from over six decades of work.
RIP Mama Bluth. We’ll be have a drink or nine for you tonight.
R. I. P. Jessica Walter. What an incredible career, filled with amazing performances. I will forever remember my time with her, watching her bring Lucille Bluth to life. She was one of a kind. All my love and thoughts to her family.— Jason Bateman (@batemanjason) March 25, 2021
