That 70s Show star and former Bond Girl has passed away at the age of 65.
Tanya Roberts was rushed to a hospital and placed on a ventilator after she went out for a walk with her dog. According to TMZ, she collapsed after returning home and never got better.
Mike Pingel took to Roberts’ Facebook page and confirmed that she had died.
