“Arrested Development” would’ve been lost without the incredibly savage and witty Lucille Bluth.

Jessica Walter was revered for her comedic timing, praised for the bite she gave to her characters, and known for her dramatic flair. A true actress, she owned every scene she appeared in.

But sadly, Walter passed away earlier this week, causing fans to grieve over her departure, and look back at the actress’ incredible career — most notably, her work on Arrested Development, the hilarious tale of the Bluths, an out-of-touch, privileged Southern California family who run into legal and financial troubles. Walter’s portrayal of Lucille Bluth, the matriarch, was one that’s stuck with fans for years.
