Deanna "Dee" Wallace (née Bowers; born December 14, 1948)[1], also known as Dee Wallace Stone, is an American actress. She is perhaps best known for her role as Mary, the mother, in the 1982 blockbuster film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. She is also known for her starring roles in several horror films including The Hills Have Eyes (1977), The Howling (1981), Cujo (1983) and Critters (1986), which earned her the title of "scream queen".[2]

Personal life[edit]

Wallace was born in Kansas City, Kansas, the daughter of Maxine (née Nichols) and Robert Stanley Bowers.[1][3] She attended Wyandotte High School, before attending the University of Kansas and obtaining an education degree. She briefly taught high school drama at Washington High School in her native Kansas City in the early 1970s. She was briefly married first to Barry Wallace and still uses his and her second husband's names in her career. Their marriage ended in divorce. She married Christopher Stone in 1980. They have one daughter, Gabrielle Stone.[4] Wallace married television producer Skip Belyea in 1998. Wallace is a public speaker and self-help author, having written three books, and has her own call-in radio show, where she talks exclusively about the creation of "self".[5] She often speaks about how you can get through tough times with determination and love. She has also written a book called Bright Light, about her life lessons from an acting career.[citation needed]

Career[edit]

Wallace starred in Steven Spielberg's film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982).[6] She and Christopher Stone starred together in several roles, including The Howling (1981), Cujo (1983), Together We Stand (1986–1987) and The New Lassie (1989–1992). In The Office episode Garden Party, Wallace played Ellen, the mother of Andy Bernard (Ed Helms).[7] In March 2015, Wallace was cast on the ABC soap opera series General Hospital, as Patricia Spencer, the unseen, long-lost older sister of Luke and Bobbie Spencer. She was nominated for the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Guest Performer in a Drama Series.[8]
