I’m hearing that Linda Manz passed away. Best remembered for her performance and naturalistic narration in DAYS OF HEAVEN. This sudden cut to her about halfway through the film at once stopped and broke my heart. RIP pic.twitter.com/6hWOxiSoxh

Linda Manz was a great underutilized performer.
Sad to hear of her passing so prematurely.
DAYS OF HEAVEN is one helluva debut.
I hope she’s serving Jesus spaghetti in the tub in heaven.

Very sad to see reports on Facebook of the death of Linda Manz, whose work in (and narration of) Terrence Malick’s Days of Heaven is one of those those performances that, as soon as you see it, you know will stay with you forever.

There was always an ethereal quality that came forth from listening to Linda Manz’s voiceover in Days of Heaven, but if anything else reaffirmed the impact of that beautiful film, it was the way her perspective only created a greater tragedy. Rest in peace. pic.twitter.com/SGUbFSMwwE

Few Things You Need To Know About Linda Manz
Linda Manz got married in 1985 to camera operator Bobby Guthrie in 1985.
In 1976, at the age of 15, she was cast by Terrence Malick to play the young narrator in his second film Days of Heaven, which was released in 1978. Manz’s part was initially smaller, but Malick was so impressed by her that he invited her to provide the narration of the film, which appeared in the final cut. She received excellent reviews.
Manz then appeared in the 1979 film The Wanderers, directed by Philip Kaufman, and played the lead in Dennis Hopper’s influential cult film Out of the Blue. She appeared in a small role as a robber in the episode “The Snow Queen” of Faerie Tale Theatre.
Her only remaining roles were a spot in the 1979 television movie Orphan Train as Sarah, one of many orphans relocated from eastern orphanages to farms in the West and Midwest in the late 1800s/early 1900s, and a handful of roles in the late 1990s, including a small role in David Fincher’s movie The Game and a larger part in Harmony Korine’s Gummo in 1997, playing the mother of one of the main characters.
