Mary Ellen Trainor of â€˜Lethal Weaponâ€™ fame is no more
“Lethal Weapon” actress Mary Ellen Trainor is no more. She died at her home in Montecito, California. She was 62 and was suffering from pancreatic cancer.
The actress started very young in the industry and worked as producersâ€™ assistant for a long time before she finally got her acting break in the very competitive film industry, Hollywood. Two films in which she had a dominant role included “The Goonies” and “Lethal Weapon”.
But as much as she will be remembered for her film career, she will also be remembered for her philanthropy as well. She got her break early in Hollywood as a producerâ€™s assistant in early seventies and went on to remain in the industry in the business of filmmaking.
A report while detailing her Hollywood journey says, â€œTrainor got her start in the film business as a producer’s assistant on a number of movies including the 1979 Steven Spielberg film “1941,” which her eventual husband, director Robert Zemeckis, wrote. After the couple married in 1980, Zemeckis cast Trainor in her first film, “Romancing the Stone,” as the kidnapped sister of Kathleen Turner’s characterâ€.
While talking about the departed soul Kennedy in a statement said, â€œMare and I have been close since our days together as college roommates, and she even provided the introduction to Steven Spielberg that jumpstarted my careerâ€¦She was a great actress, warm friend and generous spirit.â€ She is survived by her only son Alex Zemeckis. Reports suggest that a memorial service will be held on June 19 in Montecito.
