Kathy Lamkin dead at 74: No Country For Old Men star passes after 'short illness' as family says she 'left an impact’
11th April 2022

KATHY Lamkin, who starred in No Country For Old Men, has passed away at the age of 74.

She died last week after suffering for a short while from an illness.


Kathy’s family told Deadline: “Kathy will be missed by her family and friends.

“[She] left an impact on all she that encountered during her life on this Earth.”

The late actress died on April 4, though the "illness" she battled has not yet been revealed.

Kathy was best known for her scene-stealing role as a trailer park manager in 2007's No Country for Old Men.

Javier Bardem, who playedsociopath Anton Chigurh in the film, once told Backstage of their scene together, which was one of his favorites: "This woman doesn't know who this guy is and isn't intimidated.

"I said to the guys after shooting with her, 'There's only one person who can frighten Chigurh, and it's this woman.

"'You can't tell whether she frightens him or he falls in love with her — if he's going to kiss her or kill her.'"

The Texas native opened up to Backstage about finding her way to acting, despite starting out as a “painfully shy” kid.

Kathy shared: "I grew up in a very rural town, and you could only get two television stations on a good night, depending on the weather.

“And I loved watching the Academy Awards and would dream and get goose bumps about those things. 

“But we weren't rich, we weren't going to be famous, and so it was just something to dream about.”

She started out doing theater in high school and continued to act onstage while attending Texas Women’s University.

Aside from her No Country for Old Men role, Kathy also appeared in movies like both The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning.

She was also in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Heartbreak Kid, Welcome to the Rileys, and more.

Kathy's final projects were released in 2014 – one a movie, another a short film.

The first was a drama, which also starred Law & Order: SVU actress Lindsay Pulsipher and The Resident actor Glenn Morshower.

The second was a western that clocked in at less than 30 minutes and also featured Chicago P.D.’s Kevin J. O’Connor and The Dropout’s Michael Ironside.
