Los Angeles/IBNS: Actor Lee Fierro has died due to complications related to COVID-19 infection, media reports said.

Lee is best remembered for her performance in filmmaker Steven Spielberg’s Jaws.

Lee Fierro, famous for lifting her black veil and slapping Chief Brody across the face in “Jaws,” has died, according to her friends on Martha’s Vineyard who remember her as the dedicated, vibrant matriarch of the Island’s robust theater scene, reported MV Times.

The 91-year-old actor was living off-Island in Ohio.

Kevin Ryan, artistic director and board president for the Island Theatre Workshop told MV Times: "The one word I would think of when I think of Lee is dedication. I’ve watched her as a performer, director and business woman and then we became friends. She was my teacher and mentor.”

“I would still call Lee for artistic discussion and commentary … She was fiercely dedicated to the mission of teaching. She, no matter what it was, would stay at it and get the job done," Ryan said.
