'Lost' Actress Julie Adams Passes Away

Legendary actress Julie Adams, who joined the LOST universe as one of the "Others," has passed away at the age of 92.

Adams is best known for her role as Kay Lawrence in the classic Universal monster movie The Creature from the Black Lagoon. She died on Sunday, according to her son, but a cause of death has not been announced.

Adams appeared as Amelia, a member of the Dharma Initiative known as the "Others," who lived in a village on the other side of the island, away from the Oceanic plane crash survivors. She appeared in episodes 3.1 "A Tale of Two Cities" and 3.16 "One of Us."

Her career spanned over six decades in film and on television, including starring opposite Elvis Presley in Tickle Me (1965) and John Wayne in McQ (1974).

She was also a regular on the television series "Murder, She Wrote," playing the eccentric realtor Eve Simpson on the long-running Angela Lansbury show.

As part of a publicity stunt, Universal Studios once declared her legs “the most perfectly symmetrical in the world” and insured them for $125,000.

Our condolences go out to Adams' family and fans.
