The main Angels in America page features other Meryl Streep characters including a ghostly Ethel Rosenberg as well as Emma Thompson as the Angel of America, Nurse Emily and a homeless woman (though this last is only seen in very dim lighting).
J Roy Helland was makeup and hair designer; Joseph A. Campayno was key makeup; Kelly Gleason was makeup artist; John Caglione Jr was makeup artist (Al Pacino).
