Very sad to hear the news that former Happy Days star, Erin Moran, has died at the age of 56.
According to TMZ, they were told “authorities in Indiana got a call just after 4 PM ET Saturday from someone reporting an "unresponsive female." EMT's arrived and found Erin Moran's body ... she was already dead.” No cause of death has been reported. (via TMZ)
Moran is best known for her role as Joanie Cunningham on the iconic 1970s TV show Happy Days, along with spin-off Joanie Loves Chachi with Scott Baio.
Happy Days co-stars Henry Winkler and Ron Howard responded to Moran’s passing with tweets (below). (additional via Variety)
