Estelle Harris died, ‘Seinfeld’ actress was 93 years old

Actress Estelle Harris, who voiced Mrs. Potato Head in “Toy Story” and played the role of Judge Costana’s mother in “Seinfeld,” died of natural causes on Saturday, her family said. He was 93 years old.

Her son Glenn Harris has confirmed her death by deadline.

“It is with the greatest regret and sadness that I announce that Estelle Harris has died at 6:25 pm today,” Glenn Harris told the site.

“His generosity, passion, sensitivity, humor, empathy and love were virtually unmatched and he will be terribly missed by those who knew him.”

Harris was known for his distinctive high-pitched voice, but he is probably best remembered as Estelle Costanza on the NBC sitcom “Seinfeld”.

In a 2014 Mother’s Day interview with The Post, she imagined how her TV rival and her son marked the holiday.

“If George Costanza ever made me a meal for Mother’s Day, it would be a failure,” he said at the time. “Everything will be terrible. He will probably do it the wrong way – he will break the dishes, invite the wrong people, ruin everything.

Harris himself was not the best scene of the holiday, he revealed.

“I don’t like any of these holidays,” said the famous TV mom. “I think they have been brought out strictly to make money. I like to convey something every day, and I don’t just celebrate it because it has a name. “

Harris was born on April 4, 1928, in Manhattan to Polish-Jewish immigrants, according to his imdb profile. The family later moved to Tarantula, PA, where he graduated from high school, the profile says.

She began her acting career at the Dinner Theater in the mid-1980s before moving into supporting roles in film and TV. Her long biographies include appearances on the shows “No Court,” “Married … with Children” and “Star Trek: Voyager.”

Harris is survived by three children, three grandchildren and a great-grandchild, Deadline said.
