Actress Ellen Albertini Dow's agent has confirmed that she died on Monday, May 4th at the age of 101. Though you may not recognize the name, you will certainly recognize the actress from her outstanding performance of "Rapper's Delight" in the 1998 movie, The Wedding Singer. Though Dow did not begin acting in Hollywood until she was over the age of 70, she had a love of acting from a young age. In fact, she studied acting in New York City and worked with iconic mimes Jacques LeCog and Marcel Marceau. She also worked as part of a comedy act and toured the Borscht Belt. After moving to the Los Angeles area, Dow taught drama classes at Pierce College and Los Angeles City College until her retirement in 1985. It was then that she began landing roles on the small and big screen. Some of Dow's acting credits include the Sister Act movies and television shows such as Seinfeld, The Golden Girls, New Girl, Moonlighting, and ER.
