Lisa Loring, who most famously played Wednesday Addams on The Addams Family from 1964-1966, has passed.
Like many child actors, Loring's post-Addams Family life was complex, dipping in and out of the spotlight from time to time, through tabloids and media appearances. And, like many celebrities of retro media, Loring had made a career out of the fan shows and convention circuit. She did act in TV and film, keeping mostly to guest starring roles and smaller films.
Remarkably, Loring really did grow up to somewhat resemble Carolyn Jones. So, whomever from casting picked her out in 1964, well done.
Loring is survived by her two daughters.
Here's to the original Wednesday cutting a rug.
