Oh boy, Hollywood lost one of its best ever actresses today with the death of Louise Fletcher. You might not recognise the name but by god you know her most iconic role as Nurse Ratched in the perfect Oscar winner One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.
She also shone in Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Cruel Intentions and The Exorcist II alongside many TV roles down the years. She talked of her career sweetly “From the time I was very young, maybe five or six, I thought a lot about being an actress. I didn’t tell my friends about my ambitions, though, especially when I got older, because I thought they would not receive them well. I never talked about what I wanted to do.”
Godspeed, please play the baseball game. ❤
