Hours after her death was prematurely reported, Tanya Roberts did die Monday night, her partner tells CNN. The Bond girl and That '70s Show actress was 65. She had been hospitalized after collapsing Christmas Eve following a walk with her dogs in California, and had tested negative for COVID-19. Her rep tells People her cause of death "was from a urinary tract infection which spread to her kidney, gallbladder, liver and then blood stream."
