Jean Smart reveals her husband died suddenly while she was filming 'Hacks'

Fresh off her award-winning turn on "The Watchmen," Jean Smart is earning rave reviews for her starkly different work on two other HBO shows: "Mare of Easttown," in which she plays Kate Winslet's bumbling but brilliant mother, Helen; and "Hacks," where she shines as prickly Las Vegas comedy legend Deborah Vance. In a new profile by the New Yorker, Smart, 69, reveals that she was still filming the latter show when her husband of nearly 34 years, actor Richard Gilliland, died suddenly of a heart condition on March 18 at age 71.
