The Munsters Star Beverley Owen Dies at 81

Owen's former cast mate Butch Patrick, who played the wolfish little boy Eddie Munster on the series took to Facebook to remember Owen and her brief time on the series.

Beverley Owen, who played Marilyn Munster in the first season of the classic sitcom The Munsters, has died at age 81.

The actress's death was confirmed by her daughter, Polly Stone, to TMZ.

'What a sweet soul.

The Iowa-born blonde quit The Munsters to Wednesday Sesame Street director Jon Stone, with whom she had daughters Polly and Kate, and Pat Priest took over the role of Marilyn. "I had the biggest crush on her. RIP Bev and thanks for your 13 memorable Marilyn Munster episodes", Patrick captioned a set of photos of a young Owen.

The character of cousin Marilyn was the only "regular" person in this family of misfits. She is survived by daughters Polly and Kate.

The show's theme song remains an iconic piece of television history and was sampled in Fall Out Boy's 2015 hit single, "Uma Thurman". After playing bit roles here and there, she briefly landed the part of Marilyn. Nevertheless, she reprised the role of Marilyn for two LEGO-based shorts inspired by The Munsters in 2010 and 2011.

These included roles in Another World, Wagon Dragon, Kraft Mystery Theater and The Virginian.

Owen left the series after only one season to marry Jon Stone, a writer, producer and editor who would go on to a long association with Sesame Street. Outside of entertainment, Owen went on to earn a master's degree in early American history. They were married from 1967 to 1974; she was replaced for the remainder of the series by actress Pat Priest.
