Maureen Stapleton, the Oscar- and Tony Award-winning character actress whose subtle vulnerability and down-to-earth toughness earned her dramatic and comedic roles on stage, screen, and television, died Monday, March 13th at the age of 80.

Stapleton will be remembered for, among other performances, creating the role of Serafina della Rose in Tennessee Williams' The Rose Tattoo (for which she won her first of two Tony Awards), and for her Oscar-winning portrayal of anarchist Emma Goldman in the film Reds.
