It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Marilyn Burns, the actress who portrayed Sally Hardesty in the the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. She was found unresponsive in her Houston home by a family member earlier today.
Aside from her genre-defining performance in Tobe Hooper’s seminal, backwoods masterpiece, she also starred in Future-Kill, Eaten Alive, and Helter Skelter, as well as making a cameo appearance in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation.
Marilyn Burns will be missed and her on-screen talents and contributions to the world of horror won’t soon be forgotten.
