‘Nebraska’ Actress Angela McEwan Dies at 81

22 December 2015 10:57 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Angela McEwan, the actress who drew critical acclaim for her role in Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska,” has died. She was 81.

McEwan’s publicist confirmed Tuesday that the actress died Sunday due to complications with lung cancer.

Though she didn’t become a professional actress until she was in her 70s, McEwan had set her sights on acting early in life. She gave it up to raise a family and work as a criminal-court Spanish interpreter.

She took up acting lessons again after her husband, gastroenterologist Guillermo McEwan, retired. These led to roles in TV shows like “Parks and Recreation,” “New Girl” and “Getting On.”

McEwan plays a small town newspaper editor in Payne’s 2013 Oscar contender. She appeared in scenes, which Variety‘s former Chief Film Critic Scott Foundas described as “lovely, understated” in his review, opposite Will Forte.

McEwan is survived by two sons and three grandchildren.
