RIP Erin Moran (1960-2017)

Ouch, this is one that really hurts. Over the weekend the world learned that actress Erin Moran passed away at the still-too-young age of 56. She is best known for playing Joanie Cunningham, the kid sister of Richie Cunningham (played by Ron Howard, then a quickly maturing child actor, now a very famous director) in the sitcom Happy Days. She also briefly reprised her role in a short spinoff entitled Joanie Loves Chachi (yes that is the real title).

Unfortunately, while other members of the Happy Days cast continued in their careers (be it acting or directing), work didn’t come easily to Moran in the years that followed, her last acting credit came in 2010.

It’s always said when they die too young, RIP Erin Moran
