Actor Julie Adams Merges with The Infinite
Actor Julie Adams (often listed as Julia Adams), most famed for her part as "Kay" in 1954's Creature From the Black Lagoon has passed.
Adams had a long-running career beginning in 1949, and remained active in front of the lens, even appearing in a short film last year. She was also deeply generous with her fans, with lots of facebook updates, appearances in Southern California, and she was more than willing to sign autographs for those of us who reached out to her.
As people continue to discover and go for Creature from the Black Lagoon sixty-odd years on, I believe that it's in no small part due to Adams's performance, which was approximated in other creature features, but she's the original formula.
It was fantastic getting her FB page updates and knowing she cared about her fans. I'm genuinely very sorry to hear she's no longer with us.
