This is news that i'm sure will shock and upset alot of fans of The Addams Family but it's been confirmed that original Wednesday Addams actress Lisa Loring has very sadly passed away. The news broke thanks to an article on Variety which states that she died due to complications after having a stroke with her two daughters holding her hand as she quietly passed away it is also one those daughters Vanessa Foumberg who confirmed that the The Addams Family actress had passed away on Saturday saying “She went peacefully with both her daughters holding her hands" she as sixty four years old.
Lisa was of course known for playing the role of Wednesday Addams on the two season show lasting from 1964 to 1966 however she also reprised the role in the 1970's in the TV reunion movie Halloween With The New Addams Family. As well having roles in things such as CBS soap opera As the World Turns and many other roles all the way up to as recently as 2015 where she starred in the film in the comedy horror film Doctor Spine she was also she also made two appearances on the show Barnaby Jones both during the late nineteen seventies.
One the fans to leave their condolences was original The Munsters actor Butch Patrick who wrote “Very sorry to hear of my dear friend Lisa Loring’s passing.

Godspeed my friend.” the actress did have a live outside of the world of acting dong makeup work under the stage name of Maxine Factor I won't say what type of films she did make up work for here since it's not the time nor really the place to do so.
