Marla is the last surviving member of the 70s hit comedy "The Jefferson's" original cast, in which she played the family's sassy and deeply religious housekeeper, Florence Johnston.
ABC decided to pay homage "The Jeffersons" and "All In The Family" by reenacting an episode of each, live, with a cast of stars. To the audience's delight and surprise, Marla stepped into her old role.
The cast included for the two shows included Woody Harrelson, Marisa Tomei, Ellie Kemper, Ike Barinholtz, Anthony Anderson and Sean Hayes. Kerry Washington, Will Ferrell, Jackée Harry, Stephen Tobolowsky, Amber Stevens West and Fran Bennett.
ABC had announced that actress Justina Machado would be playing Florence, but when the door opened there was Marla Gibbs, 88, and just as sassy and spry as ever.
Marla's daughter Angela Gibbs followed in her mother's footsteps and is a successful actress, director, producer, writer, and acting coach.
Talent runs in the family!
Back in the 70s, one of the most popular sitcoms around was "The Jeffersons." Marla Gibbs was chosen to play Florence, Jefferson's housekeeper, but the young actress didn't let fame go to her head.
While she was trying to make it as an actress, had Marla worked as a reservation clerk at United Airlines, and after she won her breakthrough role for which she won 5 Emmy nominations, she refused to give it up.
It was years before Marla quit her part-time position at United Airline, and concentrated solely on her acting. At 88, she has over 80 films and TV shows to her credit.
