Lisa Loring Cause of Death: Dies at 64

The actress Lisa Loring, who portrayed Wednesday Addams in the iconic television adaption of The Addams Family, has passed away. She was 64 years old. According to her daughter Vanessa Foumberg, Loring passed away on Saturday night at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank from complications following a stroke brought on by high blood pressure.

Vanessa and Marianne, her daughters, held her hands as she passed away quietly. As the grotesque, pig-tailed Wednesday on the A.B.C. black comedy The Addams Family, which she played in 1964, Loring is best remembered. She only portrayed the role for two years, but she was recognized recently for inspiring Jenna Ortega’s depiction of Wednesday in the popular Netflix comedy Wednesday.

Loring moved to Los Angeles with her mother when she was a little after her parents divorced. She was born Lisa Ann DeCinces on February 16, 1958, in the Marshall Islands. At three, she began modeling under the name Lisa Loring. In 1964, she made her debut on television in a segment of the N.B.C. medical drama Dr. Kildare.

At age five and a half, Loring started working on the half-hour comedy series after winning the role of Wednesday in the A.B.C. live-action television adaptation of Charles Addams’ New Yorker cartoons. Later, in interviews, she admitted that she “learned to memorize before I could read” to say her lines.

Loring has praised her time on The Addams Family in interviews and at fan events. In a 2017 YouTube interview at Monsterpalooza, Loring said, “You couldn’t have picked a finer cast and crew. It felt like a true family.” “Gomez and Morticia were like parents to me, as were Carolyn Jones, John Astin, and Gomez. They were excellent.

The Addams Family was a C.B.S. sitcom that aired concurrently with The Munsters, a similarly macabre show that lasted two seasons and 64 episodes. Almost the original cast came together again for the N.B.C. telefilm Halloween With the New Addams Family in 1977. Astin is the final living member of The Addams Family’s original ensemble with the passing of Loring.

After The Addams Family concluded, rising actress Loring immediately found T.V. work. She later starred alongside Astin in The Pruitts of Southampton on A.B.C., a sitcom created by Phyllis Diller, as Susan “Suzy” Pruitt. David Levy served as the executive producer for both programs. Nevertheless, because of negative reviews, The Pruitts would only last one season.

Additionally, Loring had an appearance on an episode of The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. in 1966, but her career was dormant for a while after that. At 15, Loring married her high school beau Farrell Foumberg in 1973. She had her first kid the following year, but tragedy struck when her mother, Judith, passed away at age 34 from persistent alcoholism.

With Halloween With the New Addams Family, Loring made a comeback as an actor. She also appeared on Fantasy Island and Barnaby Jones, two well-known network programs. She played Cricket Montgomery in the C.B.S. soap opera As the World Turns in the early 1980s. In the late 1980s, as her television career ended, Loring made several appearances in slasher films.

She appeared in Blood Frenzy, Savage Harbor, and Iced (all in 1987), but her foray into the world of films was short-lived due to her struggles, especially her battle with heroin. Foumberg and Loring’s first union disintegrated in 1974. Eventually, in 1981, she wed actor Doug Stevenson from the film Search for Tomorrow; however, they later divorced.

She married adult film actor Jerry Butler in 1987; he had pledged to stop using the pornographic medium. The couple eventually split in 1992 due to Butler’s repeated, covert performances in adult films without Loring’s knowledge. In 2003, she wed Graham Rich; they separated in 2014. She is survived by her daughters and, Emiliana and Charles, her two grandkids.
