Name that Actress

One of our more popular comment diversions is "Name that Movie," which we break out once a year or so, and give all of you an opportunity to toss back and forth some vivid scenes from movies you otherwise don't remember. It's a fun diversion, and I hope you all endeavor to do it again in the space below. In addition to the "Name that Movie" game, here's a supplemental twist to get you going:

A longtime reader of ours, Cheryl, has a searing recollection of a certain actress, but can't for the life of her place the name. I leave it up to you, folks, to run with the clues she provides and name that actress.

So I've been trying to figure out who this actress is - but all I have to go on is a mental image. I can't remember her name, can't think of any movies she's been in, and I only have a vague image in my head of one scene I remember her being in. Anyway, here's what I have to go on:

I'm thinking of a character actress, kind of in the vein of Mindy Sterling, but much more serious. She looks a bit like an older Lili Taylor, but smaller, possibly even legally a midget (sorry if that's not the PC term)? I'm not thinking of the woman from Poltergeist, though.

I have a mental image of a short woman, with short black hair with blunt bangs, and a round nose. I think sometimes she's worn thick black glasses in films. She often plays serious, dour characters, but I can't think of any movies from the past five to ten years that she's been in. I feel like I've seen her as a nurse in a creepy, possibly horror movie. I think she often plays German or Eastern European characters, usually pretty severe. And that's all I've got! I can picture her face perfectly, but I have nothing else to go on.

If you can identify that actress, Cheryl would be very much pleased. I've unhelpfully used Zelda Rubinstein in the header pic so that you'll be hard pressed to get the image of her out of your head to increase the degree of difficulty.

In addition, feel free to offer up slipping memories of scenes from other movies or television shows that the Jiba community can help you identify. For instance: What television show used the theme song "Georgia," and, I believe, opened with scenes from in and around Atlanta? (I'm sure I could look this one up, but where's the fun in that?).
