The actress and drama teacher starred as Mrs. Kinter in Steven Spielberg's 1975 shark epic, Jaws, and it’s 1987 sequel Jaws: The Revenge. 

Lee Fierro was living in an assisted care facility in Ohio when she died of Covid-19 complications reports Variety. 

Fierro played the mother to Alex Kintner (Jeffrey Voorhees), the second victim of the killer great white shark.  

Fans of the movie will remember the explosive scene where Alex was attacked off the shore of Amity Island, prompting Fierro’s character to storm up to police chief Brody (Roy Scheider) and slap him across the face. 

Recalling her famous Jaws scene, a friend of Fierro told Martha’s Vineyard Times: 'She was tickled by it. She found it really entertaining. ‘She would say, "If you told me that’s what I’d be known for, I wouldn’t believe it".
