Remembering Piper Laurie

Piper Laurie

We are sad to learn that actress Piper Laurie has passed away at the age of 91. She began her career as a contract player at Universal before breaking free from her contract and moving into television with an Emmy-nominated role in Playhouse 90’s production of "Days of Wine and Roses." She went on to iconic roles both on the big screen and the small, including The Hustler, Carrie, Twin Peaks, and many more.
