We lost an American actress last week, the wonderful Marcia Wallace.  Best known for her roles as Carol Kester on the 70’s TV Comedy The Bob Newhart Show, as a game show panelist on the Hollywood Squares and Match Game, and most recently and for many years as the voice of Edna Krabappel on The Simpsons, for which she won an Emmy in 1992.

In 2004, Wallace published her autobiography, “Don’t Look Back, We’re Not Going That Way!” and I was lucky enough to interview her then.  And she was delightful. Enjoy:

This past Sunday, the producers of “The Simpsons” paid tribute Ms. Wallace in the show’s opening credits by having Bart write the words “We’ll really miss you Mrs. K.”  The show producers say her character will eventually be retired after they run out of the episodes Wallace voiced for Mrs. Krabappel before her death.
