Erin Moran, the youngest major cast member on Happy Days (1974-1984) and later a co-star with Scott Baio on the short-lived Joanie Loves Chachi (1982-1983), has been found dead from what is suspected to have been a heroin overdose.
She was 56.
Moran was also a regular on Daktari (1966-1969) and made six (!) voyages on The Love Boat. Her credits were sparse, however, aside from the all-time classic Happy Days, which led to many jokes.
I always loved her for being on the make on the show. Her catchphrase? “He's quite a hunk!”
