Update: The original version of this story has changed after it emerged that Tanya Roberts is still alive, despite earlier confirmation from reps she had died.

It has emerged that Tanya Roberts, star of Charlie’s Angels and James Bond, is alive despite it being reported that she had died at the age of 65.

The actress’s supposed death was confirmed by her rep on Sunday, stating that she was walking her dogs on Christmas Eve and collapsed on returning home. 

She was rushed to hospital and put on a ventilator, and it was initially reported that she died on Sunday. 

According to TMZ at the time, it was not believed to have been related to Covid.

Her representative Mike Pingel clarified on Monday that the TV star’s longtime boyfriend Lance O’Brien received a phone call from the hospital at around 10am to inform him that Roberts was alive.

Pingel said O’Brien ‘truly believed’ Roberts was dead.

Roberts is known for her role as Julie Rogers on Charlie’s Angels in 1980, lasting on the show for one season alongside Cheryl Ladd and Jaclyn Smith, before the show’s cancellation. 

In 1985, she became a Bond Girl to Roger Moore’s James Bond, starring as Stacey Sutton in action classic A View To A Kill. 

Most recently, she was best known for playing Midge, mother of Donna Pinciotti (played by Orange Is The New Black’s Laura Prepon) on That 70s Show. 

Other credits include The Blues Brothers animated series, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Beastmaster and Sheena.

As well as an acting career, Roberts is also a successful model, posing for Playboy and appearing in ads for Ultra Brite toothpaste, Clairol cosmetics and Cool Ray sunglasses. 

She was on the show for 81 episodes, running from 1998 to 2004 before leaving the series in order to look after her ill husband. 

Roberts married twice – once to Barry Roberts, from 1974 to his death in 2006, and then later to Lance O’Brien.
