Joyce Ingalls, former actress and model, has died at the age of 65.

RIP Joyce Ingalls

Ingalls died in a California medical facility in Burbank, California, earlier this month, on Aug. 5. Her cause of death has not been released, but reports of her passing were confirmed by her husband, producer Darrell Fetty.

Ingalls was best known for playing a prostitute in Sylvester Stallone’s directorial debut, Paradise Alley (1978), and only has five acting credits on IMDB — the last for Lethal Weapon 4 in 1998.

Ingalls was born in South Carolina in 1950 and was discovered when she was just 16, after winning a Cover Girl contest. Over the course of the ‘70s, she became a popular model, promoting Clairol hair products and Black Velvet whiskey. She married Fetty, who recently earned an Emmy nomination for his work on Hatfields & McCoys, in 1984. Together they have two sons, Derek and Tyler.
