Actress Nan Martin has passed away. She died on March 4th at the age of 82. Nan was perhaps best for her role as the boss Mrs. Louder on The Drew Carey Show. She also appeared in numerous guest starting roles on television shows, including Ben Casey, NYPD Blue, The Twilight Zone and Star Trek: The Next Generation. She also appeared in movies such as A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and Doctor Detroit, and worked on Broadway.
Though my number one favorite role of her ever has to be, hands down, her guest appearance on The Golden Girls episode “It’s A Miserable Life,” as the evil but hilarious neighbor Mrs. Claxton. It’s one of my favorite episodes of not just that show’s second season, but the series.
