Shelley Duvall rose to fame in the 1970s as cinema’s new darling and muse to Director Robert Altman who cast her in many of his films.
Her first role was in Altman’s Brewster McCloud followed by McCabe & Mrs. Miller; Thieves Like Us; Thee Women; Nashville and Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or Sitting Bull’s History Lesson.
She would go on to work with Woody Allen in Annie Hall and star in her most famous role as Wendy Torrance alongside Jack Nicholson in Stanley Kubrick’s iconic film The Shining.
Shelley was consistent in working in television as well as children’s shows hosting Shelley Duvall’s bedtime stories; Adventures from the Book of Virtues and the cult Disney movie, Mother Goose Rock’n’ Rhyme where she portrayed Little Bo Beep. The film was a unique take on the storybook classic starring Art Garfunkel, Woody Harrelson, Debbie Harry, Cyndi Lauper, and Little Richard.
Duvall will return to acting with her first project in over 20 years in the indie horror, The Forest Hills, written and directed by Scott Goldberg.
