"Just McClane's name, badge number, police record, vital statistics... And his family's address right here in L.A."
―Mary on John McClane to Thornburg. [src]

Mary was the assistant of Richard Thornburg. Her name was never mentioned in the movie, but the script revealed her name as Mary.

Die HardEdit

PDVD 094

Mary giving Richard Thornburg information about John McClane.

Mary only appeared briefly in the film when she gave Thornburg information on McClane and his family. Richard Thornburg was inside the news van keeping up with the Nakatomi Plaza Takeover when she presented a manilla folder in front of his face. Thornburg asked if she got anything on the McClane family when she responded by saying that she got his employment history and family address, which is located right there in Los Angeles. She gets a smug grin on her face, happy that she has found important information. They then left and drove to Holly Gennero's residence, but what they don't realize is that the information they put on television was ultimately be seen by terrorist mastermind Hans Gruber, not only jeopardizing McClane's wife but also his own life and the lives of her children.

She was never seen again in the film, but her actions were extremely selfish, only done to further her own career without considering the consequences they could have. Mary was replaced by Celia as Thornburg's assistant in his next broadcast.
