Mary Mara, an actress best known for roles on ER and Ray Donavan, has died, her manager Craig Dorfman said in a statement to CNN. She was 61.
“Mary was one of the best actresses I’ve ever met,” said Dorfman. “I remember seeing her on stage in 1992’s ‘Mad Forest’ on Broadway. She was electric, funny and a real individual. Everyone loved her. She will be missed.”
According to a press release from the New York State Police, officers responded to a call about a “possible drowning” around 8:10 a.m. local time on Sunday. Troopers and Cape Vincent Fire and Ambulance arrived at the scene and “discovered a woman deceased in the St. Lawrence River,” the press release said.
“Preliminary investigations indicate that the victim drowned while swimming,” police said.
There are no signs of third-party debt, the police added in their statement. The Jefferson County Medical Examiner’s Office is expected to perform an autopsy to determine an official cause of death, police said.
Mara had a list of credits that spanned television and film, including multi-episode roles on shows like Dexter, The Practice, and Star Trek: Enterprise. She was arguably best known for her roles in Nash Bridges, ER, and Ray Donovan.
Mara’s film credits included “Mr. Saturday Night” and “Love Potion #9”. Her latest credit was the 2020 film Break Even.
