Erin Moran, best known for playing Joanie Cunningham on Happy Days, has died. She was 56.
Moran’s body was found unresponsive on Saturday afternoon by authorities in the US state of Indiana.
The California-born actress, who also starred in Happy Days spinoff Joanie Loves Chachi, had fallen on hard times in recent years. She was reportedly living out of a motel in Indiana, battling substance abuse.
A sad end.
Happy Days did indeed provide many happy days to my generation. Up until the point it literally jumped the shark, it was great easy viewing.
