My mind was blown on a crisp autumn day, while Aunt Judy was binge-watching the entire series, “Murder She Wrote”:
In, “Murder She Wrote,” Angela Lansbury portrays Jessica Fletcher, a murder mystery writer who can’t seem to turn around without stumbling into yet another grisly crime scene.
In the show, Jessica Fletcher, the fictional murder mystery writer from Cabot Cove, Maine, has a fictional cousin from England, named Emma Macgill.
The role of Emma Macgill is also played by Angela Lansbury.
Angela Lansbury portrays BOTH Jessica Fletcher AND Emma Macgill.
Minds have probably already been blown.
But there’s more:
In real life, Angela Lansbury’s mother was a famous actor from Ireland, named Moyna Macgill.
Portraying Emma Macgill, Angela Lansbury may have been paying homage to her own actor mom, Moyna Macgill.
