#21 Mary Woronov

As Miss Togar in "Rock 'n Roll High School"

Mary Woronov became one of Andy Warhol’s superstars after visiting the Silver Factory on a class trip.  During her three years of marriage to Theodore Gershuny she starred in three of his films, all in the horror/SF vein.

After her friend Paul Bartel persuaded her to move to Los Angeles her movie and television career really began.  You can see her in many beloved Roger Corman productions, including Death Race 2000 and Hollywood Boulevard. She is probably best known as Mary Bland in Paul Bartel’s black comedy Eating Raoul, but she has many horror credits large and small – Blood Theatre, Night of the Comet, Hellhole, and TerrorVision, to name a few.

Never actually intending to be an actress, she has published three books, is a much better painter than i could hope to be, and has written an autobiographical film currently in production.
