Though, the cause of her death has not been made public but it’s not related to COVID-19.
Her longtime friend, Mike Pingel, told the Hollywood Reporter: “I’m devastated. She was brilliant and beautiful and I feel like a light has been taken away. To say she was an angel would be at the top of the list. She was the sweetest person you’d ever meet and had a huge heart. She loved her fans, and I don’t think she realized how much she meant to them”.
Tanya starred as Stacey Sutton in the James Bond movie ‘A View to a Kill,’ and she recently opened up about the fear she had on starring as a Bond girl.
She told the Daily Mail in 20015: “I sort of felt like every girl who’d ever been a Bond girl had seen their career go nowhere, so I was a little cautious,”
“I remember I said to my agent, ‘No one ever works after they get a Bond movie’ and they said to me, ‘Are you kidding? Glen Close would do it if she could,” she stated.
She acted a role in ‘A View To Kill’, ‘Body Slam’ in 1987 and ‘Night Eyes’ in 1990.
She will be remembered for her contributions in Hollywood and the movie industry.
