Brew News: Alaina Reed Hall Dies

Alaina Reed Hall, best known for her roles on Sesame Street and 227, has died. Hall was just 63 years old. Finding official confirmation of her death has been sketchy on these here innawebs, but several sites are reporting she passed away this week. Hall had been public about her struggle with breast cancer in recent years.

Hall played Rose Holloway on 227 and Olivia on Sesame Street. She was the widow of actor Kevin Peter Hall, the 7′2″ actor who was the predator in Predator and Harry in Harry and The Hendersons. He was also her love interest on 227. He died in 1991 from AIDS-related complications after contracting the illness from a blood transfusion.

So sad. Let's remember her in better days.

Strangely, the 227 theme song popped in my head last night as I walked from work.  There really is no place like home.  Alaina has gone to her real home above.  R.I.P.
