According to the records
Mary Mouser was born in September 1924 in Kinderhook, Illinois. She was given her full name, Maryulia Samsonovitch, although sometimes called simply Samson or Marily. It is believed that this name was given by her mother when she came to America in the 1920s. Some sources say that she was born in Larusso, Romania, but this is not known with certainty.
The character of Samantha Matson was created by writer Arthur Miller in his novel The Mysterious Lady. The character of Mary Murphy was based on the life of writer Marion Shepherd, who had the same name. It is believed that the two had a falling out, which led to Shepherd committing suicide. The name of the deceased author was Matulia Shepherd, which was a common name in that era for an American artist.
Sources state that the actor was in rehearsals for a play in Arkansas when the incident occurred. There has been no official confirmation of what happened exactly, but she was found dead in an Arkansas hotel room on the afternoon of March 9th, 2021. Mary Mouser has been an active member of the United States film industry, making several films since her death.
There was a celebration in Hollywood, California, on the day of the funeral of the famous author, where numerous celebrities were there to pay their tributes. Among these people were Mouseser family members, as well as her former co-workers from The Saturday Night Live TV Show. Many of those present at the gathering were there to celebrate the fact that Mary would be moving to the United States to pursue her dream of becoming an author. One of the things that she did, however, was to change her name.
Mary’s mother had been calling her “Martine” since she was six years old. When she changed her name to Mouseser, people began to call her “Martine” instead. It has been speculated that this was because her boyfriend at the time, Brett Pierce, was also named Martine. Mouseser and Pierce were married in January of 2021. Though no formal announcement was made, Mouseser was spotted at a New Years Eve party in the area wearing a wedding band and a long black veil.
