Stage, movie and TV character actor Mark Blum was probably best known for his 1985 film “Desperately Seeking Susan,” but he was also a staple in the NY theatre community frequenting stages on Broadway and as a player with Playwrights Horizons, an off-Broadway theatre company. He leaves behind his wife, Janet Zarish.“I remember him as funny warm, loving and professional.”— Madonna“Those of us lucky enough to have known him will treasure our memories of a gifted actor, a master teacher, a loyal friend, and a beautiful human.”— Rebecca Damon

  1. I know Mark though his sister Nancy who was my bunkmate in summer camp for years. I followed his career and was so proud to know a real Broadway actor. In the not too recent past, my camp friends and I met him at the stage door after a Broadway show. He was so lovely to us. My heart goes out to Nancy and her family. Rest In Peace, Mark.
