Where Are They Now - Friday, August 11, 2017
Every summer I take time to re-watch all 4 Jaws movies. That's right, all 4 Jaws movies!
This year, by the time I got to Jaws: The Revenge, I began to wonder whatever happened to franchise star Lorraine Gary. She played Ellen Brody, wife of Chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider), in three out of the four of the Jaws movies.
Let's see what actress Lorraine Gary has been doing lately.
