I used to tell people we were related, not knowing if we actually were or not.

Probably not. She had acting talent, most notably IMHO as mentioned in Play Misty for Me.

Walter was the first young, attractive actress to play an out-and-out psycho in a mainstream film. She paved the way for Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction.
