Thats a super scary mugshot :eek::sad:. I've always loved Joyce as a kid on 3's Company and when she did gameshows. I even saw her in a play ( this is what Joyce mainly did in the 90s/2000s )at a dinner theatre years back :lol:. At age 60 she just started to break into features as a character actor as she just wrapped a couple indie movies. I hope she makes it out of this ok and continues in film, tv and theatre:)
