Here is our dear friend, actress Edie McClurg, with fellow actor Emilio Estevez at a screening of the movie “Bobby,” which was directed by Emilio with his dad, Martin Sheen, as one of the stars. Edie says Martin Sheen was very curious and asked her about our hand-painted saint medals. Edie is always wearing and sharing our medals out in Hollywood. She has been in the SaintsforSinners “family” for years. You probably recognize her as the delightfully wicked secretary from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” or the hilarious next door neighbor, “Mrs. Poole” from long running “The Hogan Family” television program.
Here’s another photo of Edie wearing our hand-painted saint medals, only this time she at our home in New Orleans, and getting ready to enjoy a great weekend of music at The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Edie is a dedicated Jazz Fest groupie and we are happy she is because we get to have her visit us every year.
Edie’s “One Woman” autobiographical show, “It’s Edie in Here” at The Groundlings Theatre on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles was critically acclaimed and we were riveted by her performance. Edie has great depth and range as an actress; you can hear her starring once again as the witty “Carlotta the Maid” in “Little Mermaids III,” coming soon to a theatre near you! She will also be appearing in “Simple Things,” written and directed by Andrew Erin.
