I am still waiting for that blue police box to take me on a star trek to a galaxy far, far away. Until then I will have to content myself with fantasy and sci-fi adventures from books, movies, and TV shows.

Beverley Owen, who played the original Marilyn on the first season of the TV show The Munsters, passed away on February 21 at age 81.

Beverley was born Beverley Ogg on May 13, 1937 in Ottumwa, Iowa. She moved to New York to pursue acting after graduating from the University of Michigan.

Fellow cast member Butch Patrick (Eddie Munster) posted the following on Facebook: “Beautiful Beverly Owen has left us. What a sweet soul. I had the biggest crush on her. RIP Bev and thanks for your 13 memorable Marilyn Munster episodes.”
