Hollywood was rocked by the death of legendary comedian Gene Wilder, who passed away at the age of 83 on Aug. 29 from complications of Alzheimer’s. And ONE LIFE TO LIVE star Hillary B. Smith (Nora) sent her love to his wife, Karen Boyer and beautifully expressed her own feelings on losing her former co-star.
“I send my love to Karen, who lost her beloved Gene,” Smith wrote on Twitter. “I shed a tear for me, who lost my beloved Gene. He taught me so much, he gave me so much.”
Smith co-starred as Wilder’s wife in the NBC sitcom SOMETHING WILDER which ran for 15 episodes in the mid ‘90s. She continued to appear sporadically on OLTL while filming, returning full-time to the soap upon the comedy’s cancelation in 1995.
Our thoughts are with Smith and all of Wilder’s friends and family during this difficult time.
