Lupe Ontiveros, 1942-2012

Just discovered, quite serendipitously, that Lupe Ontiveros, 69, died of liver cancer.

I’ve always been a fan of this actor who seemed to be a woman with whom you could sit and share a cuppa. She was a genuine and gifted artist.

I was meaning to do some research on the woman born Guadalupe Moreno in El Paso on September 17, 1942. Planned a chapter on my favorite actors, including Rosalind Cash, Madge Sinclair.

I think I’m having an EB moment. I haven’t been right since hearing Ernie Borgnine left us. At least he was 95. I love his recipe for longevity.

Lupe Ontiveros. She was young. We lost gold.
