John Waters’ Bit Player Survives Gun Shot in the Neck by Home Intruder

George Stover escorts Divine to the electric chair in Female Trouble

George Stover, who had regular speaking parts  in early John Waters films was shot in the neck yesterday in his home after arriving from a late party.  It was a minor neck wound and he is expected to have a full recovery.  George played memorable, if small roles including the minister who reads Divine his last rites in Female Trouble,  Bosley Gravel (Mink Stole‘s husband who was smothered to death by the family maid, played by Jean Hill) in Desperate Living, a reporter in Polyester, and the security guard at the Governor’s Mansion in Hairspray.

George also had speaking parts in dozens of low-budget horror movies throughout his career.  He lives in Towson, MD, less than five miles from John Waters’ childhood home.

We have been working with George on a long interview to appear soon in this space, and wish him a speedy and full recovery.
