Forbidden Planet Actress Passes

From Wikipedia:

Anne Lloyd Francis (September 16, 1930 – January 2, 2011)was an American actress, best known for her role in the science fiction film classic Forbidden Planet (1956), and as the female private detective in the television series Honey West (1965–1966). She won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Emmy award for her role in Honey West. Francis holds the distinction of starring in the first TV series with a female detective character’s name in the title.

Francis was treated for lung cancer in 2007-2008. She kept her followers informed of her progress on her official website. She died on January 2, 2011 of complications of pancreatic cancer at a retirement home in Santa Barbara, California, a city in which she was a longtime resident.

Last November, her leading man in Forbidden Planet, Leslie Neilsen passed away at the age of 84.

I’m sure I speak for everyone here at SciFiFX and our affliated clubs when I say that we will all mourn her passing.
