Dee Wallace (born Deanna Bowers; December 14, 1948), also known as Dee Wallace-Stone, is an American actress and scream queen. She is perhaps best known for her roles in several popular films, mainly in the horror genre. Her most widely seen part is a starring role as Elliott's mother in the Steven Spielberg film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982). She also played key roles in popular cult films The Hills Have Eyes (1977) and The Howling (1981) and appeared in The Stepford Wives (1975) and 10 (1979). In total, Wallace has appeared in more than 85 films.

Early life and careerEdit

Wallace was born Deanna Bowers in Kansas City, Kansas, on December 14, 1948. She appeared in the television series Together We Stand (1986-1987) and the syndicated The New Lassie (1989-1992). In the latter series, she appeared with her husband Christopher Stone, with whom she also co-starred in Cujo (1983) and The Howling (1981).

Wallace remains popularly known for her horror film roles. She has appeared at many horror film conventions and has a reputation for being very kind and generous with her many admirers and fans. She has also opened an acting studio to mentor young actors. Her husband, Christopher Stone, died suddenly in 1995 of a heart attack while she was filming The Frighteners in New Zealand. Coincidentally, The Frighteners told the story of a series of bizarre, inexplicable heart attack-related deaths.

She starred in Rob Zombie's re-imagining of Halloween; Wallace played Cynthia Strode, Laurie Strode's adoptive mother. In 2009, she played the role of Nancy Dooly, Vincent's mother in The Mother of Invention. She appeared in the horror film The Ocean, the western Between the Sand and the Sky, and the horror-thriller Sebastian. The latter movie stars Daeg Faerch, Meadow Williams, Betsy Rue, Meg Foster, and Greg Vaughan. She is also featured in the eighth season of The Office as the mother of Andy Bernard, in the episode "Garden Party."
