TWO AND A HALF MEN ACTRESS DIES
Conchata Ferrell, better known as Berta, the housekeeper in Two And A Half Men, has died.
Her manager, Dan Spilo, told CNN that she passed away around 12:30pm on the 12th of October from cardiac arrest.
He described her as a "wonderful, kind-hearted, strong woman".
During her career that spanned over five decades, the 77-year-old actress also appeared in movies like Mystic Pizza, Mr. Deeds and Erin Brokovich.
She was nominated for three Emmy awards during her TV career. Besides acting on both the small and big screen, she also taught acting for television at UCLA.
Her co-stars in Two And A Half Men both shared their condolences on social media, with John Cryer saying "she was a beautiful human. Berta’s gruff exterior was an invention of the writers. Chatty’s warmth and vulnerability were her real strengths. I’m crying for the woman I’ll miss, and the joy she brought so many."
Charlie Sheen described her as "an absolute sweetheart, a consummate pro, a genuine friend". In true Charlie style, he finished off his tribute with a good-hearted joke.
"Berta, your housekeeping was a tad suspect, your 'people' keeping was perfect."
Deadline reports that in lieu of flowers, Conchata’s family requested any donations to TheLovelandFoundation.org and the ASPCA.org
