Actress to portray Mary Todd Lincoln

(Continued)

While studying the woman, Mathews said she found that Mary Todd had a special trait. "She was quite a mimic. She was very funny and witty. She was in her school plays and cracked up her friends and probably Lincoln with imitations of people. she could have been an actress I think."

Although, Mathews acknowledged, there is a slight difference between herself and Mary Todd Lincoln. "She was taller than I am. She was 5-1 and I’m shorter than that."

Mathews also found an affinity for her character when she was cast as Mary Lincoln in the 2012 production of "A. Lincoln: A Pioneer Story" at the Lincoln Amphitheatre in Lincoln City, Ind. At the time, she and her husband were living in Evansville. They have moved to Carmel to be nearer to family.
