Lee Fierro - Biography
Lee Fierro is an actress who was born on February 13, 1929. She is known for Jaws (1975), Jaws: The Revenge (1987) and The Mistover Tale (2016).
Fierro's famous scene in Jaws, in which she (as Mrs. Kintner) slapped the police chief, required several takes. Fierro reportedly had "objected to the profanity" of the scene's dialogue as originally drafted, and the director, Steven Spielberg, wanted dialogue that accorded with Fierro's "everywoman looks," so the scene's dialogue was rewritten the day before it was filmed.
Several decades after the filming of Jaws (1975), Lee Fierro, who plays Mrs. Kintner, walked into a seafood restaurant and noticed that the menu had an "Alex Kintner Sandwich". She commented that she had played his mother so many years ago. The owner of the restaurant ran out to meet her - none other than Jeffrey Voorhees, who had played her son. They hadn't seen each other since the original movie shoot.
