I liked her in scrubs. She always seem to die off in her roles.

This is what I remember her most for. I wish they wouldn't have killed her off. I did enjoy Lily Tomlin, a bit more comedy, but Mrs. Landingham is always there to keep a box of fresh pens.

RIP, she was an excellent actress

It led to one intense scene where the President calls out God as a "feckless thug" for allowing her to die.

She was a terrific actress and will be missed.

Nope, that was Linda Hunt, who more recently has been starring with Chis O'Donnell and LL Cool J on NCIS: LA
