Legendary Puerto Rican Actress Miriam Colón Dies At 80

Actress Miriam Colón, best known for her role as the mother of Tony Montana in the 1983 movie “Scarface,” died on March 3 at the age of 80.

The legendary Puerto Rican actress had starred in more than 90 films and more than 250 television episodes. Her husband, actor Fred Valle, told the Associated Press that Colón died in a New York hospital because of complications from a pulmonary infection.

Colón studied acting since she was a young girl in her native Puerto Rico. In 1953, she moved to New York City, where she was accepted into the acclaimed Actors Studio after only one audition.

She became the first Puerto Rican member to join the Actors Studio. Her first acting gigs after moving to New York included theater work and a role on the soap opera “Guiding Light.”  In 1983, she landed a pivotal role as Mama Montana, the mother of Tony Montana (Al Pacino) in the iconic film “Scarface.”

“The mother in Scarface was a courageous woman, a great character,” Colón said in a 2013 interview. “She could not be corrupted. It’s a wisdom and a kind of intelligence that I love.”

Other notable roles include “All The Pretty Horses” and “Goal!” She also played recurring characters on HBO’s “How To Make It In America” and AMC’s “Better Call Saul,” Deadline reports. The pioneering actress received an Obie Award in 1993 for “Lifetime Achievement in the Theater.”

In 2014, President Barack Obama awarded Colón a National Medal of the Arts.

Actress Gina Rodriguez tweeted her thoughts on the passing of Colón.
