Lisa Loring — who played the original Wednesday Addams character on the original “Addams Family” television show — has died. She was 64.
Loring was taken off life support on Saturday after suffering a “massive stroke,” her friend Laurie Jacobson said in a post on Facebook announcing the death.
“It is with great sadness that I report the death of our friend, Lisa Loring,” Jacobson wrote.
“4 Days ago she suffered a massive stroke brought on by smoking and high blood pressure. She had been on life support for 3 days.”
Loring’s family made the decision to remove the life support on Saturday and she passed overnight.
Jacobson added: “She is embedded in the tapestry that is pop culture and in our hearts always as Wednesday Addams.”
