Lee Chamberlin, an original cast member of the 1970s PBS children's show The Electric Company, and who then went on to a decades-long acting career on stage and screen, died Monday in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, of metastatic cancer, The New York Times reports. She was 76.
The actress, who was living in Paris, had been visiting her son Matthew at the time of her death.
Chamberlin – who starred on The Electric Company alongside Bill Cosby, Rita Moreno and then-newcomer Morgan Freeman – played the character Vi, who owned a diner and sang duets with Freeman.
