Oh No, Who Knew This 227/Sesame Street Actress Passed Away From THIS?
We all remember “Olivia” from “Sesame Street” and “Rose” from “227,” right? She impacted our lives back in the day as either the sister-girl friend of “Mary’s” on “227,” or the friendly photography sister of “Gordon” on “Sesame Street.” Actress, Alaina Reed Hall, is one of those actresses who we consider to be a rare gem in entertainment and although she touched the lives of many throughout her years in mainstream media, there are still many of us who didn’t hear about her passing due to some lack of mainstream media coverage. That’s why we want to take a minute to shed some light on this incredible actress.
Alaina’s career lasted several decades, but her life was ended when she succumbed to breast cancer at the age of 63 in 2009. She’d been battling the disease for two years and word on the Old School curb is that she still had plans on continuing to work until her last day. It was said that she was supposed to be making a return to “Sesame Street” as “Olivia” in an episode that was tentatively titled “Olivia’s Back” and she had planned on doing so as soon as her cancer treatments were done, but unfortunately she never got to see that day. She originally left “Sesame Street” in 1988, while she continued starring on “227” at that time.
Alaina was married twice in her life and it was during her stint on “227,” that she also met her first husband, whom was an actor that many probably never even realized she had married. This is quite interesting…chcek out who he is below…
ALAINA MARRIED AGAIN IN 2008
A year before Alaina passed away, she married her second husband, Tamim Amini. Tamim is a film director of Persian descent and it's extremely sad that he only had one short year to call Alaina his wife. May Alain Reed Hall and her ex-husband, Kevin Peter Hall, continue sleep in eternal peace.
