Actors, writers, journalists and producers expressed their sadness over the iconic TV housekeeper’s death
Hollywood is expressing its sadness and remembering Ann B. Davis, who played the iconic housekeeper, Alice, on “The Brady Bunch.”
The actress died in San Antonio, Texas at 88 years old. She had fallen in her bathroom on Saturday evening, suffered a subdural hematoma and died a day later at a local hospital.
Her co-star, Florence Henderson, who played matriarch Carol Brady, expressed her surprise and sorrow.
“I’m shocked and saddened ! I’ve lost a wonderful friend and colleague,” she said in a statement.
Although the show about a blended family aired during the late 60’s to mid-70’s, the series aired in repeats for years to become a cult favorite.
Best known for “The Brady Bunch,” Davis’s entertainment career started at age six. She performed in theater, traveling companies and on the TV programs “The John Forsythe Show” and “The Bob Cummings Show.”
