After doing a few more roles, she somehow got lost in obscurity and even though she kept making appearances in films and TV shows sometimes, but she remained away from the limelight for the most part. She did movies such as ‘2010’, a science fiction film which released in 1984. In the 90s, when David Lynch, the master of mystery thriller films, decided to make a TV series, he gave Mary a very crucial role of Eileen Hayward, a woman on wheelchair, whose cause for being handicap wasn’t ever explained. The surreal and terrific series worked with the audience and Mary became a household name. The next big thing to happen to her was a role in Mel Gibson starrer ‘The Patriot’ in 2000, and very recently she was seen in ‘Ruby Sparks’.
