(CNN) - The actress Lisa Loring, best known for playing the original Wednesday in “The Addams Family” series, has died at the age of 64.
She had a stroke last week. Her family removed life support on Saturday.
Loring was just 6 years old when she portrayed the iconic death-obsessed, pigtail-wearing Wednesday in “The Addams Family” sitcom.
The show only lasted two years.
But in 1977, Loring reprised her role as Wednesday Senior in the television film “Halloween with the New Addams Family.”
Her other acting credits include “The Pruitts of Southampton,” “As the World Turns,” “The Girl from U.N.C.L.E.,” “Fantasy Island” and “Barnaby Jones.”
