‘That 70’s Show’ Actress and former Bond Girl Tanya Roberts has apparently ‘returned from the dead’ after only yesterday being announced as dead by her representation.
The announcement came after the 65-year-old Roberts collapsed while walking her dog outside her home on Christmas eve.
Apparently, in spite of the strange announcement from her representation, she is still alive and well, at least for the time being.
As Today reports:
Her spokesperson, Mike Pingel told TODAY and other media outlets his client had passed Sunday night at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He said her partner, Lance O’Brien, had been told to say his final goodbyes by hospital staff and then called Pingel, distraught after having done so.
Pingel said he was with O’Brien during an interview when O’Brien got a call from the hospital at 10 a.m. PT on Monday informing him that his wife was still alive.
Roberts was out walking her dogs on Christmas Eve when she collapsed. Her illness is not understood to be related to COVID-19, but Pingel would not immediately specify the nature or severity of her illness to TODAY.
Hours after announcing the death of Tanya Roberts, the actress known for starring opposite Roger Moore in his final turn as James Bond and for her roles in “Charlie’s Angels” and “That ’70s Show,” her publicist said on Monday that he had done so in error. https://t.co/l9Qkgfddwp
