Molly Shannon


Before "Saturday Night Live" (1975), she had a struggling career in films, she first protrayed a supportive role as Meg in the present day sequences in the horror film remake of The Phantom of the Opera (1989) with Robert Englund and Jill Schoelen, which was a major hit in 1989. But Molly Shannon's major break came in 1995 when she starred in TV's "Saturday Night Live" (1975) where she usually played various parts on the comedy show and was also known for playing her role on the show as Mary Katharine Gallagher. After her departure from SNL, she has re-focused on a film career. She has again played Mary Katharine Gallagher for the motion picture _Superstar_ and a supportive role in Never Been Kissed (1999). And recently for comedy films including How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000), Shallow Hal (2001), The Santa Clause 2 (2002), Serendipity (2001) and Osmosis Jones (2001).
