Trivia:

Her arresting performance as assassin Charlotte Corday (replacing Glenda Jackson) in the Broadway production of "Marat/Sade" in 1967 led to film offers, most notably in Medium Cool (1969) and Clint Eastwood's High Plains Drifter (1973). Her last acting film role to date was as Mary, the mother of Jesus, in the highly controversial Martin Scorsese film The Last Temptation of Christ (1988). See more »
