How is that?

According to the American media, the reason for the false report was the statement of Tanya Roberts' partner Lance O'Brien, who had been warned by doctors that she was rapidly weakening after the injury and could die.

He was next to her in the hospital room when the actress stretched out her arms to him, but closed her eyes and fell silent. Lance was so shocked by what happened that he said he thought she was dead. Lance left the ward and reported the death of his common-law wife to the actress's official representative, Mike Pingel. As Pingel told TMZ, Lance told him, "She died in my arms."

“When I held her in the last moments of her life, she opened her eyes. I saw her beautiful eyes for the last time. Tanya had the most beautiful eyes, ”said O'Brian.

According to Pingel, he never understood why Lance decided that Tanya Roberts passed away when she could simply fall asleep or pass out. Nevertheless, Pingel issued a press release about the death of the actress. On January 4, doctors contacted Lance O'Brian and reported that Tanya Roberts was alive. But later she died.

Career as an actress

Despite the fact that Roberts began acting in the mid-1970s, international fame came to her with the role of "Bond Girl" - which has become a kind of rolling calling card of little-known but attractive actresses.

Roberts played this role in A View to Murder (1985), where the English actor Roger Moore last starred as 007.

To the American audience, Roberts was known for the popular television series Charlie's Angels, as well as the movie Sheena, Queen of the Jungle.

Tanya is the stage name of the actress, her birth name is Victoria Lee Blum. She was born in 1955 in the Bronx, New York. Her father was of Irish roots, her mother was Jewish.

Victoria left school early and began acting in commercials for television and fashion magazines. At the age of 19, she married aspiring screenwriter Barry Roberts and - already as Tanya Roberts - began to attend the famous New York Actors Studio, where at that time the famous theater teachers - Lee Strasberg and Uta Hagen taught.

She made her film debut in 1975 in the horror film Violent Invasion. In 1977, Tanya and her husband moved to Hollywood, where she began to appear regularly, in particular, having played in 1979 in the cult horror film "Tourist Trap".

Acting fortune really smiled at her when the studio that filmed the popular detective television series "Charlie's Angels" chose her from about two thousand applicants for the role of the new "angel" in the final season of this series.

For her role as “Queen of the Jungle” Sheena in the 1984 comic-book film, Roberts was nominated for the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress.

She also received a Golden Raspberry nomination for A View to Kill (1985), although this role brought her international fame. Later, the actress admitted that with some apprehension she accepted the offer to star as a Bond girl, but it would be foolish to refuse such a chance.

The subsequent roles in erotic thrillers - "Night Watch" (1990) and "Secret of the Soul" (1991) - did not contribute to the advancement of her acting career. However, in the period from 1998 to 2004, she successfully starred in more than 80 episodes of the popular US TV series "The 70s Show".

Tanya was married to Barry Roberts for 32 years, until his death in 2006.
