 Home Alone Actors You May Not Know Passed Away

Veteran stage and screen actress Billie Bird makes a cameo in “Home Alone” as Irene, whom Kate McCallister (Catherine O’Hara) tries to buy a plane ticket from in order to get back to Chicago. In exchange for taking a later flight, Kate offers the woman $500, a First Class upgrade, a pocket translator, a fake Rolex, a ring, and her earrings. When that fails to sway the woman’s husband (Bill Erwin), Kate appeals to their emotional side.



Born in Pocatello, Idaho and raised in an orphanage, Bird was getting laughs on the vaudeville stage as early as age seven. She spent decades racking up small roles in film and television while simultaneously appearing on stage in plays and variety and burlesque pieces that she often wrote herself. During the Vietnam War she did USO tours with her solo comedy show “Flying High with Billie Bird,” and was made an honorary Green Beret for her efforts.  letras de cacniones famosos y recientes Letras de canciones



Despite being a literal showbiz lifer, Bird’s most recognizable roles came in the last decade or so of her career. She worked with John Hughes in “Sixteen Candles” before “Home Alone,” and afterwards in “Dennis the Menace,” once again alongside Bill Erwin. In 1988 she appeared in another early millennial holiday classic, “Ernest Saves Christmas,” then booked the most substantial role of her career on the Judd Hirsch hit sitcom “Dear John,” which ran for four seasons. Bird died in 2002 from complications due to Alzheimer’s Disease; she was 94.
