(The Hollywood Reporter)Mary Ellen Trainor, an actress who appeared in all four "Lethal Weapon" films and in several movies directed by her then-husband, Oscar winner Robert Zemeckis, has died. She was 62.

Trainor, who also stood out as homemaker Mrs. Walsh in "The Goonies" (1985), died May 20 at her home in Montecito, California, lifelong friend, fellow San Diego State alum and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said.

Trainor married Zemeckis in 1980 and made her big-screen debut, at the suggestion of Michael Douglas, in the pivotal role of Elaine, the kidnapped sister of Kathleen Turner's character, in the director's "Romancing the Stone" (1984). She and her husband later collaborated on "Back to the Future Part II" (1989), "Death Becomes Her" (1992) and the Oscar best-picture winner "Forrest Gump" (1994) before they divorced in 2000.

Trainor portrayed L.A. police psychiatrist Dr. Stephanie Woods in the quartet of "Lethal Weapon" films and teamed with director Richard Donner on "The Goonies" and "Scrooged" (1988) as well.
