Arrested Development star Jessica Walter dies at 80

Jessica Walter, the veteran actor who played comically self-involved matriarchs in both “Arrested Development” and “Archer,” has died, her family said Thursday.

The 80-year-old Walter passed away in her sleep in New York City on Wednesday, a representative for the actor said.

“It is with a heavy heart that I confirm the passing of my beloved mom Jessica,” daughter Brooke Bowman said in 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.”

Younger fans of Walter will know her best for playing Lucille Bluth, who regularly stole scenes with absurdly cruel and cutting comments about her on-screen children in the critically acclaimed sitcom “Arrested Development.”
