Actress Mary Stein attended the prestigious Juilliard School in New York City, after already receiving a BA from Marquette University. In regional theater, she has played such diverse roles as 'May' in Fool for Love and 'Agnes' in Agnes of God. Rave reviews, unique talent and an enthusiasm to explore different media, led Stein to Hollywood where she broke into television on a series of pilots as well as guest starred on such well known TV shows as Star Trek: The Next Generation and Murphy Brown.
Mary's feature film break came with the unforgettable role of 'Angela' in Orion Pictures' 1996 sleeper hit Man of the Year (1995). Mary grabbed Ron Howard's attention with her enigmatic performance as 'Miss Floom', the hotel landlady in Babe: Pig in the City (1998). She went on to play, the Whoville school teacher, 'Miss Rue Who' under Ron's direction in Universal Pictures' blockbuster release of How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000), alongside Jim Carrey, Molly Shannon, and Christine Baranski.
Mary took time to chat with me about her career and her upcoming film LITTLE BOY where she stars along side Kevin James, Emily Watson and Tom Wilkinson.
LITTLE BOY is the story of a 7-year old boy who is willing to do whatever it takes to end World War II so he can bring his father home. The story reveals the indescribable love a father has for his little boy and the love a son has for his father.
