Molly Shannon’s family tragedy shaped one of her most famous characters

In an interview with Los Angeles Times, Shannon discussed how the character became after an awful vehicle mishap led to the death of her mom, sibling and cousin when the starlet was 4 years of ages.

“I was very heartbroken and very sad and just trying to hold it all together as a kid,” she stated. “There’s no way that you could feel that type of deep pain about your mother and your sister being dead, so you just hold it all in, and it comes up later in life.”

The mishap seriously hurt Shannon’s daddy, who was driving under the impact.

In character as Mary Katherine Gallagher Shannon would actually toss herself in the function, often harming herself at the same time.

She stated she was so into it that she would often awaken the next day puzzled regarding why she was bruised and damaged.

“I didn’t care if I cut myself or I made myself bleed,” Shannon stated. “I did not give a s—. I looked at it like punk rock. I was reckless, and because of what I went through, I just didn’t care about anything.”

Nowadays she’s hectic with work on programs consisting of “The White Lotus” and “The Other Two” in addition to her upcoming bio.

Sharing her story makes her feel susceptible, she stated.

“You feel like you put your heart right there on the table, but I hope that my story can help other people,” she stated.
