Former Bond Girl Tanya Roberts Dies At 65 After Premature Announcement of Death
Actress Tanya Roberts died on Monday night at the age of 65.
Her publicist, Mike Pingel, prematurely announced her death on Sunday. Her longtime partner, Lance O’Brien, had left the hospital believing it would be the last time that he would see her but received a call on Monday morning from the hospital, revealing that she was still alive.
O’Brien was notified later that day that the actress had passed away.
While her cause of death has not been shared, Roberts was sent to the hospital after collapsing at her California home on December 24. She tested negative for COVID-19.
Roberts began her career as a model, before starting her film and TV career that spanned over 30 years. Her notable roles include one of the main characters in Charlie’s Angels during its final season, Bond girl Stacey Sutton in A View To A Kill, opposite Roger Moore as 007, and Midge in the popular sitcom That 70s Show.
Her final role was in the 2005 television series Barbershop.
