Jaws Actor Lee Fierro Dies From Coronavirus Complications at 91

Lee Fierro, who appeared in Jaws as Mrs. Kintner, has died from coronavirus complications.

Variety reports that the actress had been living in an assisted living facility in Ohio and was 91.

Her memorable scene in Steven Spielberg‘s Jaws was when she walks up to the police chief, played by Roy Scheider, and slaps him.

Lee was also a drama teacher at the Island Theatre Workshop, the paper reports, before she moved to Ohio to be closer to family in recent years.

A small, social distancing service is being planned by her family in Ohio and Lee will also be honored at a memorial service in Martha’s Vineyard at a later date.
