RIP Mimi Weddell - by Andreas Lonn

A legend of extras in films has passed away!

"Mimi Weddell disproved F Scott Fitzgerald's belief that there are no second acts in American lives. From the age of 65 until her death at 94, she at last earned her living the way she had always wanted – as a model with a neat sideline in movie bit parts, listed among New York magazine's 50 most beautiful Manhattanites and the subject of a documentary. Mimi had put in the hard work, and kept up the effort, swinging on the rings at the gym through her 80s even as her spine curved and she shrank six inches in height, willing to the end to stand the whole day at an open audition for a job." source : TheGuardian
