In recent years, Walter has offered side-splittingly sardonic performances in both Arrested Development, in which she played the sharp-tongued Bluth matriarch Lucille, and Archer, in which she voiced the titular spys delightfully impossible mother, Malory. But her career encompasses six decades and began on the stage before she transitioned to television and film.

It is with a heavy heart that I confirm the passing of my beloved mom Jessica, Walters daughter, Brooke Bowman, said in a statement. A working actor for over six decades, her greatest pleasure was bringing joy to others through her storytelling both on screen and off. While her legacy will live on through her body of work, she will also be remembered by many for her wit, class and overall joie de vivre.

A New York native, Walter appeared in a number of Broadway productions when she first began performingand as Deadline notes, she won the Clarence Derwent Award for Most Promising Newcomer in 1963 for her turn as Ada Cooney in Photo Finish.

Walters notable film credits include The Group and Grand Prix, the latter of which earned her a Golden Globe nomination for most promising newcomer. In 1972, she earned a best actress nomination for her performance in Clint Eastwoods directorial debut, Play Misty for Me.

Outside her performances on the stage and big screen, Walter also established herself in the world of television long before the Bluths took Fox by storm. Three years after her best actress nod at the Globes, she also won an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a limited series for her starring turn in the NBC police drama Amy Prentiss. Her other notable television roles include four appearances on Murder, She Wrote (in which she played four separate characters) and Fran Sinclair in the reptilian ABC sitcom Dinosaurs.

But Walters more recent TV work, especially Arrested Development, did introduce her to a new audiencea bevy of adoring fans charmed, no doubt, by that unmistakable voice and gift for imbuing her icy characters with a trademark streak of absurdity.

For years, Arrested Developments future appeared uncertain thanks to its cancellation at Fox and a less-than-beloved revival at Netflix. The show found itself at the center of controversy in 2018, when, in a New York Times interview, Walter responded to Jeffrey Tambors apology for an on-set outburst only to have her male co-stars attempt to downplay his behavior. In almost 60 years of working, Walter said, Ive never had anybody yell at me like that on a set and it's hard to deal with, but Im over it now.

David Cross recently clarified some of the production circumstances that made the shows on-set environment so intense in recent seasons, and also confirmed the show has officially ended.

David Cross, who played Walters son-in-law and Shawkats father, Tobias Fnke, wrote, I just heard the shitty news about Jessica Walter an absolutely brilliant actress and amazing talent. I consider myself privileged and very lucky to have been able to work with her. Lucille Bluth is one of TVs greatest characters.
