Eileen will be missed. Too bad that they didn't give out Emmys in the mid 1970s for Best Supporting Actress. La Herile could have won one easily in 1976 and 1977. Kitty's search for her mother was one of AMC's best storyline of the 1970s and Eileen's acting had a lot to do with that!!!I'd type more but I'm on the verge of tears right now.......RIP Eileen!!! :frown:
It was definitely a great storyline with Phoebe hiring Myrtle Lum to pose as Kitty's long lost mother. The acting between Eileen as a carny worker out to make a buck and Ruth as the increasingly erratic "problem drinker" Phoebe were unforgettable. So were those with Myrtle developing true maternal feelings for Kitty and the chemistry with Francesca James. It's a testament to that wonderful actress ,Eileen Herlie, that Myrtle Lum Fargate lasted for more than 30 years on a show which went through so many changes over the years.

Four-time Daytime Emmy nominee Eileen Herlie has passed away.

Best known by American audiences as All My Children's Myrtle Fargate, the actress died at the age of 90 on Wednesday from complications due to pneumonia.

Eileen had a full career. She appeared in a number of films and even earned a Tony nomination for her work on Broadway.

In the late 40's, Miz Fargate was cast by the legendary Laurence Olivier for his film adaptation of Hamlet.


Eileen leaves behind a brother and nieces and nephews.

Our thoughts are with them.

I was wondering something...
Didn't the actress that played Mona pass away around the same time as the last tornado?
Like I thought her death was written in after a couple weeks after it all aired?
If so, this has happened again and I find it spooky.
