Tanya Roberts discusses her Hollywood career in 1981
Tanya Roberts’ heartbroken husband Lance O’Brien has admitted he passed out after the famous Bond girl tragically died aged 65 in hospital in LA this week. It comes after Tanya’s representative confirmed her cause of death “was from a urinary tract infection which spread to her kidney, gallbladder, liver and then blood stream”.
The That ’70s Show star was confirmed dead prematurely by her agent, who later confirmed she died several hours later.
Opening up about the actress’ final moments, Lance said: “It was early in the morning, six o’clock in the morning, and they go ‘OK she’s getting better, we gave her some blood sugar because her sugar was low and she’s responding.’
“So I figure this is going to be a short-lived event, next thing I know she’s going to the hospital in the emergency, you can’t visit her, you can’t talk to her because she’s on a ventilator.
“I haven’t been able to see her, they let me go see her two days a go, Sunday or whatever, and I go down there.

“She got up a few times, opened her eyes, those beautiful eyes, she’s responding, she’s responding, she’s responding, and they told me that was just a reflex.”
He continued: “Then about 90 seconds later her eyes rolled back in her head and she was out and I was just beside myself.
“I got back into the elevator, I didn’t know where I was at.
“My gasping, I was upset, my gasping.
“I just said goodbye to Tanya. That was it, I just passed out,” he divulged, in an interview with The Sun.
While sharing her cause of death, Tanya’s rep Mike Pingel said: “With a heavy heart I can confirm the death of Tanya Roberts last night on January 4, 2021 around 9:30pm PT at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA.”
He added in a statement: “Roberts was an animal rights activist in lieu of flowers, they are asking for donations to be given in Roberts name to the ASPCA.
“An online memorial for Tanya Roberts will be announced shortly. The family ask for privacy as they mourn her death.”

Tanya was rushed to hospital on Christmas Eve after collapsing while walking her dogs.
She was then put on a ventilator.
Her agent initially said the actress had died on Monday, but later announced she was still alive in the ICU, before confirming she’d passed away.
In a live television interview with Inside Edition, Tanya’s partner Lance said he thought she had “faded away” and left the hospital without speaking to medical staff.
Putting the chat on hold as he answered his phone, Lance could be heard saying: “Now, you’re telling me she’s alive?”
Crying with joy, he added: “The hospital is telling me she is alive! They are calling me from the ICU team.”
Tanya was widely known for playing Julie Rogers in the final season of the 1970s television series Charlie’s Angels.
She went on to play Stacey Sutton in the James Bond film A View to a Kill, alongside the late Sir Roger Moore.
The actress also famously played Midge Pinciotti on That 70s Show.
