R.I.P. Nan Martin

9 Mar

Stage and screen actress, Nan Martin, died Thursday in California.  She was 82.

A veteran of Broadway, Martin had the pleasure of working with the late director, Elia Kazan.  She also was lucky enough to act in a Tennessee Williams production.

Younger people may know her best from her recurring role on The Drew Carey Show in the 1990’s.  She also guest starred on TV shows such as CSI, NYPD Blue and The Twilight Zone.  Horror aficionados may also recognize her as the mother of Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Freddy Krueger.
