A relatively unknown actress at the time, her portrayal of Henry's mistress Janice Rossi led to roles in "Jungle Fever," "The Naked Gun 2½," "Seinfeld," "ER," and "The X-Files." Clearly, Mastrogiacomo was a star on the rise. Unfortunately, the actress passed away due to a rare bacterial infection of the heart on May 2, 2001, at the age of 39.

Appearing in many of her son's films, including "Mean Streets," "Taxi Driver," and “Casino” Catherine also bit parts in "Moonstruck" and "The Godfather Part III." Sadly, Catherine, who would often cook dinners for the cast and crew — a gig that led to a published cookbook of family recipes — passed away from Alzheimer's in 1997 at the age of 84.
