Mimi Weber, 80, talent agent

Manager repped Olivier, Beatty, Davis

Talent agent and personal manager Mimi Weber died May 16 of an aneurysm in Los Angeles. She was 80.

Weber began her career in 1958 at MCA in New York, representing clients including Laurence Olivier, Warren Beatty, Bette Davis and Cary Grant.

She became a personal manager in 1961 and represented actors including George Maharis, Myrna Loy, Harry Guardino, Nick Nolte and Pam Dawber. She worked with up and coming performers as well as established stars, and was instrumental in launching Nolte’s career by helping to get him cast in the “Rich Man, Poor Man” mini-series.

In 1962, Mimi was the first woman to be invited into conference of personal managers. She served as VP of the organization and was the lifetime membership award, recognizing her contributions to the national conference of personal managers.

She is survived by her son Neil Barry, her brother Paul Zucker, and nephews Michael Zucker and David Zucker and niece Susan Zucker.

The funeral will be at noon on Sunday, May 20 at Mount Sinai in the Hollywood Hills.
