What a relief! After it was reported that former Bond girl Tanya Roberts had tragically died at the age of 65, it turns out she’s still among the living! We’ve got five things to know about ‘That 70s Show’ star.

It’s a 2021 miracle! On Jan. 3 it was reported that former That 70s Show star Tanya Roberts had passed away at age 65, after collapsing at her home on Christmas Eve and being hospitalized at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in L.A. ever since. Apparently her husband Lance O’Brien truly believed Tanya had died, telling TMZ on Jan. 3, “As I held her in her last moments, she opened her eyes.” Her rep Mike Pingel told The Hollywood Reporter: “I’m devastated. She was brilliant and beautiful and I feel like a light has been taken away. She was the sweetest person you’d ever meet and had a huge heart.”

Mike now tells TMZ on Jan. 4 that Lance got a call just after 10 AM Monday from the hospital saying Tanya was among the living. The site noted that other friends and family of Tanya contacted them to confirm Lance had called to break the news that his wife was gone….though thankfully she is still with us. HollywoodLife.com has reached out to her rep as well as her husband about the confusion surrounding her supposed death. We’ve got five things to know about Tanya.
