RIP Zelda Rubinstein

Zelda Rubinstein passed into the light today after being hospitalized for over a month. Weeks ago she suffered a heart attack and was taken off life support when her lungs and kidneys failed. Her recovery was valiant yet unfortunately short-lived.

She was probably best known as the medium Tangina in the Poltergeist film series but also had a three decade-plus acting career in television and film as well as voiceover work. She was 76, and will be missed.
