Berry Berenson (April 14, 1948 – September 11, 2001)
Berinthia “Berry” Berenson-Perkins was an American photographer, actress and model and the wife of actor Anthony Perkins (who played Norman Bates in the film Psycho). In the late 1960s she began her career by briefing modeling, before quickly turning her attention to photography. Berenson then studied acting at the American Place Theatre. She starred in Cat People, Remember My Name with her husband Perkins and Winter Kills. Berenson and Perkins married on August 9, 1973 in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. They had two sons together — Elvis and Oz who both became musicians and remained married until Perkins’ death of AIDS-related complications on September 12, 1992. Berenson died herself at age 53 aboard American Airlines Flight 11, the first of two hijacked flights to crash into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower at 8:47 am. Berenson was flying to California following a holiday on Cape Cod to commemorate the 9th anniversary of Perkins’ death (which would have been the next day).
