Sad news tonight that longtime BOB NEWHART SHOW costar Suzanne Pleshette has passed away at age 70.
Pleshette, whose husband of nearly 32 years passed away in 2000, married Tom Poston, costar of Bob Newhart's second classic show NEWHART, in 2001. They had known each other since the '50s. Poston passed away last year.
Pleshette was part of the famous ending of the second NEWHART show, as Bob woke up in bed next to her and we learned he had dreamed the entire second series.
Her films included Alfred Hitchcock's THE BIRDS, James Garner's SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL GUNFIGHTER, and the Disney films THE UGLY DACHSUND, BLACKBEARD'S GHOST, THE SHAGGY D.A., and THE LION KING II: SIMBA'S PRIDE.
