Rue McClanahan (goldengirls star) dies aged 76

Post by Morganite/Tilly on Thu Jun 03, 2010 4:40 pm

Rue McClanahan, who was best known for her role in 'The Golden Girls', has died at the age of 76.

The actress played man-eater Blanche Deveraux in the hugely popular US sitcom for seven years between 1985 and 1992.

Before finding worldwide fame in the series, McClanahan had acted on Broadway and later co-starred with future 'Golden Girl' Bea Arthur in the US series 'Maude'.

Her manager told People magazine that she passed away earlier today with her family by her side following a massive stroke.

Her death comes just over a year after that of her former co-star Bea Arthur, who played Dorothy in the series. Estelle Getty, who played Dorothy's mother Sophia, died in 2008.

Rue McClanahan's death leaves 88-year-old Betty White the only surviving star of the series

I just read that a few minutes ago. Loved, loved, loved her!
I can watch reruns of The Golden Girls and still laugh every time.

My oldest son met her about 4 years ago. He saw her and called her Blanche. She got a kick out of it and loved it when he said he'd been watching the show for years, since he was only about 20.
