    Yelchin stepped out of his car in the driveway of his Studio City home at around 1:10 a.m. PT when the car slid backwards and pinned him against a brick pillar and a security fence, causing trauma that led to his death, said Jennifer Houser with the Los Angeles Police Department.

    Yeah, I think she got that role fairly early in her career/life. A 5 year run & numerous specials, reunions and such as Mrs. Brady planted her in the country's subconscious as the domestic wife/mother and she was typecast.

    She came from an extensive background in theatre -- so not something you could see on the tube.

    I am glad myself..
    Though now he is gone, AND we have normalized relations with Cuba, will that mean the 'dry land sanctuary' rules for cuban immigrants/refugees will be stopped?

    I remember him more for Det. Ron Harris in Barney Miller, a late 70's TV show.

    Speaking of Star Trek deaths within the last week Visual Effects Supervisor Ron Thornton died and just very recently Star Trek DS9 guest star Fritz Weaver died. According to IMDB, Fritz among other things:

    Has made guest appearances on both of the longest running prime-time dramas in United States television history: Gunsmoke (1955) and Law & Order (1990).
    Has played a defense attorney in two different productions: Law & Order (1990) and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993).
    Michael McKean's tweet about Fritz Weaver.

    Thanks for that link for full list of who's died..
    Several of the ones i didn't know of..
    Bill nunn, while not an 'a' list actor, he was always one of my fave black actors... Especially since i saw him in Sister act (the first time i remember him in a lead roll, but loved him in Cadallac man, candyman farewell to the flesh, loaded weapon 1, bullet proof (the sandler/waynes one), kiss the girls, extreme measures and runaway jury..

    Jon Polito, always a crook or cop..
    Steven hill, loved him in the original Law and order..
