Lisa Loring, a well-known actress who originated the role of Wednesday Addams in the 1960s TV version of The Addams Family, has passed away. According to her daughter Vanessa Foumberg, she passed away as a result of complications from a stroke brought on by high blood pressure. She told the media that “she passed away peacefully with both her daughters holding her hands.” She had a 64-year-old age.
Jenna Ortega who plays the same character in the recent TV series ‘Wednesday’ paid her respect to the legendary actor through a post on Instagram. “Absolutely devastated. Thank you for everything,” Jenna wrote.
High blood pressure damages or obstructs the arteries, which can result in a life-threatening stroke. Lack of oxygen causes the brain cells during a stroke to die. Speech, movement, and other basic functions are interfered with as a result. Strokes can also pose a threat to life.
Heart attack, stroke, and other fatal conditions can result from hypertension, which is when blood pressure rises to 180/120 millimetres of mercury (mm Hg) or higher.
The main causes of hypertensive crises are interruptions in blood pressure medication, interruptions in heart medications like beta blockers, drug interactions, and occasionally pheochromocytoma or an adrenal gland tumour.
Stroke symptoms frequently include vision changes, difficulty speaking, and numbness in the limbs. One of the main symptoms of the potentially fatal condition is sudden difficulty walking. Other symptoms include dizziness, loss of control and coordination, as well as difficulty understanding speech.
According to Laurie Jacobson
a friend of Lisa’s, Lisa had a stroke brought on by “smoking and high blood pressure.” She spent three days on life support.
“I must inform you with deep sorrow of the passing of our friend Lisa Loring. She had a severe stroke 4 days ago as a result of smoking and high blood pressure. For three days, she had been on life support. She passed away last night after her family made the difficult decision to remove it yesterday. She is permanently ingrained as Wednesday Addams in our hearts and the tapestry of popular culture.
Beautiful, kind, a loving mother, Lisa’s legacy in the world of entertainment is huge. And the legacy for her family and friends — a wealth of humor, affection and love will long play in our memories. RIP, Lisa. Damn, girl…you were a ton of fun.” Laurie Jacobson wrote.
Fans and admirers have paid their respects to the actor. “Rest in Peace Lisa Loring, the original Wednesday Addams. The original Wednesday dance with Ted Cassidy from the 1964 episode, Lurch Learns to Dance,” Danny Deraney tweeted.
Jenna’s Wednesday dance has been a hit among netizens. Fans say the dance was a tribute to Lisa Loring’s Wednesday character.
