Jessica Walter, the veteran actor who played comically self-involved matriarchs in both "Arrested Development" and "Archer," has died, her family said Thursday.
The 80-year-old Walter passed away in her sleep in New York City on Wednesday, a representative for the actor said.
David Cross, who played Lucille Bluth's son-in-law Tobias Fünke, called Walter "an absolutely brilliant actress and amazing talent."
"Lucille Bluth is one of TV's greatest characters."
Walter also gained acclaim with contemporary audiences for her wry voiceover work in the animated FXX series, "Archer," playing Malory Archer, the hard-drinking mother of super spy Sterling Archer.
