Mary Louise Weller


Born: New York City, New York, USA


Lovely, shapely and appealing blonde actress Mary Louise Weller was born on September 1, 1946 and raised in Los Angeles. The onetime top New York model made her film debut with an uncredited tiny role in the superbly gritty cop drama Serpico (1973). Weller was especially memorable as a beautiful marine biologist in the made-for-TV picture Hunters of the Reef (1978) (TV) and, likewise, solid as professor Andrew Prines college student lover in the superior haunted house horror winner The Evil (1978). Mary achieved her greatest enduring cult movie popularity with her excellent and inspired performance as snooty and uptight sorority snob Mandy Pepperidge in the uproariously raunchynraucous hit comedy Animal House (1978). After Animal House, Weller went on to play the sole non-suicidal character in The Bell Jar (1979), Martin Koves fetching wife in the cruddy Jaws rip-off Blood Tide (1982), Chuck Norris girlfriend in the exciting martial arts action opus Forced Vengeance (1982) and a funny small part in Larry Cohens terrific tongue-in-cheek monster-on-the-loose treat Q (1982). Mary had guest spots on the TV shows Quincy M.E. (1976), Fantasy Island (1977), Supertrain (1979), CHiPs (1977), Vega$ (1978), The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries (1977), B.J. and the Bear (1978), Kojak (1973), Starsky and Hutch (1975) and Baretta (1975). Weller voluntarily quit acting in film and television programs in the early 80s. She acted in a bunch of plays in New York and wrote the play Four Alone, which was performed at the Greenhouse Theater in Pasadena. Moreover, Mary trained with the U.S. Equestrian Team as a teenager and has participated in horse-riding competitions. Weller tried to get a movie based on her own original script made about jockey Mary Bacon, but, alas, it never came to be. Shes a first cousin to writer Sheila Weller. In 1986, Mary Louise Weller purchased a large three-acre ranch in Malibu, California so she could raise horses. IMDb Mini Biography By: woodyanders
