    Her stage success never translated to films.
    One of her primary acting rules is never to get romantically involved with a co-star, but she admitted she violated that rule with Albert Finney.
    She made herself 'anorexically thin' for her performance in 'Medea.'
    She gets so caught up in her roles that it takes month to 'regain my self.'
    She won four Tony Awards.
    Playwright Terence McNally described her acting as 'clear, direct and magnificent.'
    She donated 30 acres near her home in Westchester County for a wildlife habitat to be named after her late husband, stage director Robert Whitehead.
    She said, 'We're in big trouble when you hear actors talk about themselves as 'artists.''
