Known for her flamboyant eccentrics and inimitable gravelly tones, she played Tallulah Bankhead in the 1980 mini-movie The Scarlett O'Hara War (1980).
In a 2003 interview with The Times-Picayune of New Orleans, Ms. Nye was asked to name the favorite role of her career. "None of them," she said. "I only became an actress so I wouldn't have to cook or make a bed."
