Actress Pamela Blair dead at 73 after battling unidentified illness

The daytime television world lost a legend this week.

Actress Pamela Blair, known for her roles in "All My Children" and "A Chorus Line," died at age 73 following a long battle with an "unknown illness" according to The Daily Beast.

The outlet noted:

An Emmy nominee, Blair made her Broadway debut in Promises, Promises in 1968 and later landed roles in Sugar and SeesawOf Mice and Men, and King of Hearts, among others.

Blair was honored across social media, with former colleagues, friends, and fans all weighing in on her impact in the business.

Baayork Lee, who co-starred with Blair in "A Chorus Line" wrote a tribute to her late friend in a Facebook post.

"I am very sad to say my Sagittarian sister Pam Blair has gone to play with her ACL Collegues among the clouds. Walt Disney Pammie and I shared the same birthday. We always wrote to one another no matter where we were on that day," Lee wrote.

Lee added, "What a colorful character she was as depicted in the Val monologue in the show. She brought the house down every night as well as a woman standing at the edge of the orchestra shouting, "Wash your mouth out."
You are free now Pammie so dance, dance, dance amoung the stars."

"We are saddened to hear that Pamela Blair, the original "Val" in A Chorus Line, has passed away. The character was loosely based on her own life, and she was a part of the musical from the very first workshop. 🫶 Our thoughts are with her loved ones and fans," the Marvin Hamlisch Twitter account posted.

"I will never forget Pamela Blair's performance in "A Chorus Line." She brought the house down with her portrayal of the character, "Val," who sings "Dance 10, Looks 3,'" Robin Spielberg tweeted.

Blair was born in Vermont on December 5, 1949.

She made her Broadway debut in "Promises, Promises" in 1968.
