Shelley Duvall Returns to Acting After a 20-Year Hiatus

After a 20-year hiatus, The Shining’s iconic Wendy Torrance, played by actress Shelley Duvall, will make a cinematic comeback, according to the specialist website Deadline, which also shares the first image of the actress in her next movie.

The 73-year-old actress will reportedly appear briefly in the horror B series The Forest Hills, which also stars Edward Furlong and Dee Wallace.

The mother of the main character, a man, plagued by nightmare visions ever since suffering a brain injury in the Catskills of New York, will be played by Shelley Duvall.

Robert Altman’s favorite actress in the 1970s, Shelley Duvall, with whom she co-starred in timeless films like John McCabe (1971) and Nashville (1975), had departed Hollywood by the mid-1990s.

In 2002, she made her final film appearance. She had starred in the indie movie Manna from Heaven that year. Since then, she’d retired. Nevertheless, the actress made a comeback in 2016 on the hit program Dr. Phil.

The program has caused controversy by depicting Shelley Duvall as having paranoid problems. Though she later denied the issues that had been blamed on her on the show.

Shelley Duvall also revealed in it that she wished to avoid Hollywood because of her terrible experience on The Shining set, which had permanently affected her.
