I never shared the criticism that there was to the character at the time. It was compared with the exaggerated role of Piper Laurie in Carrie and although they had a certain resemblance, I always thought that the character of Hershey had many more nuances. She's great, because it keeps a good balance in a role that in other hands would have been totally disproportionate. Indeed she is a controlling, manipulative mother, but all her actions exude deep unconditional love for her daughter.

I think it's a great performance ...

If she drew comparisons with Piper Laurie, then that only shows the strength of her performance. Piper Laurie did get nominated for that role. Barbara Hershey was the real monster in the movie.

I had not seen this photo before. It shows Natalie and Sergio Torrado (Rothbart in the film)
