She has done almost everything to fit her snugly into this list; she was in three nerd-cred iconic roles: Alice in Swamp Thing, Selina Kyle/Catwoman in the animated Batman series and animated Gotham Girls, and of course Maggie in Escape from New York.
She's a prolific actress, whose ability to work has not diminished with age to the degree of her compatriots (IMDb shows she is currently in production on two films). Her only real competition is from Pam Grier. Here are some of her highlights:
- Carol Traynor in Maude with Bea Arthur ('72-'78)
- Stevie Wayne in The Fog ('80)
- Marcie Thatcher in The Cannonball Run ('81)
- Wilma Northrop in Creepshow ('82)
- The Computer voice in The Thing ('82)
- Barbara Rossetti on The George Carlin Show ('94)
