Marilyn Burns Biography

Marilyn Burns

Marilyn Burns was born in Erie, PA., and is acknowledged as one of the original ‘Scream Queens,’ a title she claimed in her role of Sally Hardesty in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  Her follow-up appearance was again directed by Tobe Hooper in Eaten Alive, where she portrayed a vacationer who unwittingly stumbles upon a hotel run by a madman who feeds his guests to his pet alligator.

     The actress maintained her horror following with starring roles in films such as Kiss Daddy Goodbye and Future-Kill.  In 1976, she appeared in the TV movie Helter Skelter as Linda Kasabian, the Charles Manson follower whose testimony helped lead to the conviction of the cult leader.

     In 1994, Burns also made an uncredited cameo as a patient on a hospital gurney in The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
