    Jeez that’s awful. Was a very underrated actor. That scene in Arachnophobia where his body fell out of the giant web gave me and I’m sure many kids who watched it nightmares for weeks! He was great in Arachnophobia and Warlock. RIP.

    She possibly had some Scandinavian ancestry with the Ringstedt surname
