Molly was an active and vibrant force in the Chicago acting and performing community. She had a very successful career in TV/film and on stage in Chicago. Her TV credits include Chicago Fire and Boss. Molly was a regular at some of the city’s most renowned theaters, including Steppenwolf, Chicago Shakespeare and Northlight.
