Actress Lisa Loring, who played Wednesday Addams in 1964’s ‘The Addams Family,’ passed away on Saturday, January 28, 2023, at the age of 64.
She also appeared in “When the World Turns”.
The actress died of a stroke. “She went peacefully, her two daughters holding hands,” said Foumberg.
Her friend, Laurie Jacobson, announced her death on Facebook.
Butch Patrick, who played Eddie Munster in ‘The Munsters,’ also remembered her on Facebook, saying, “I am very sorry to hear of the passing of your dear friend Lisa Loring. We were very close and worked together often. “I know it’s very weak. I was in her company just a few weeks ago. My friend Godspeed.”
Loring’s sparkling plug dance “The Drew” is back in the spotlight with a new Netflix series.
Netflix’s new series ‘Wednesday’, in which Jenna Ortega interprets her Wednesday dance in her own way, is inspired by the original story.
Although her character on Wednesday Addams is sweet in the series, there are also hints of melancholy. Loved by fans, it still lives on in their hearts as the young classic Wednesday.
