  • Columbia University alumnus Lorraine Gary had racked up an impressive list of stage credentials by the time she began appearing in made-for-TV movies in 1971. In both her small- and big-screen work, the versatile Gary has seldom offered the same characterization twice--with one notable exception. Having achieved movie fame for her performance as Ellen Foley, wife of sheriff Roy Scheider, in the blockbuster Jaws (1975), Gary felt obliged to revive the character in the two Jaws sequels, produced respectively in 1979 and 1987 (the latter picture, Jaws-The Revenge, compelled Gary to emerge from a brief retirement). For well over three decades, Lorraine Gary has been married to MCA executive Sidney Scheinberg.
