On the 2 Broke Girls episode “And the Coming Out Party,” Caroline’s (Beth Behrs) grandmother Astrid awakens from a coma. The old woman doesn’t have a clue about the family’s financial scandal and Caroline doesn’t have the heart to tell her. Instead, Caroline throws her grandmother one last fancy luncheon.
Astrid is portrayed by Judith Roberts. The 81-year-old actress is best known for her roles on Orange Is the New Black (Taslitz), in the films The Nanny Diaries (Milicent), Death Sentence (Judge Shaw), and the 1977 David Lynch classic Eraserhead (beautiful girl across the hall). Fun fact about Roberts: She also starred in the 2013 Justin Timberlake “Mirrors” music video (see below). 2 Broke Girls airs Wednesdays at 8pm on CBS.
