Ashton Kutcher Letting His Old Castmates Know Tanya Roberts Isn’t Dead Has Made My Whole Day

Ashton Kutcher Tanya Roberts That '70s Show

Ashton Kutcher, bless him, is going around to his That ’70s Show castmates and updating them on the fact that Tanya Roberts, who was believed to be dead after a fall on Christmas Eve, is actually still alive.

Today a couple of That ’70s Show cast members, who worked with Roberts back in the day, poured out their hearts in loving tribute to the actor that they knew and loved. Unbeknownst to them, the news of Roberts passing was actually just one gigantic press error.

Roberts, 65, was reported to be dead yesterday after falling over on Christmas Eve. Today, her representative told Variety that her husband Lance O’Brien, who believed she was dead as well, was contacted by the hospital to confirm that she is alive, but in ‘dire’ conditions in the ICU.

“I was so sad to hear that Tanya Roberts has passed away,” wrote That ’70s Show star Topher Grace on Twitter.

“I had never acted before and, to be honest, a little nervous around her. But she couldn’t have been kinder. We’ll miss you, Midge.”

In swoops Ashton Kutcher, brilliantly, with a “yo bro she’s not dead.” Honestly put that on my tombstone.

Shortly after Grace put up his tribute, Debra Jo Rupp followed suit.

“Tanya had a big deep hearty laugh. She was all instinct and beauty,” wrote Rupp.

“In the first season of 70’s we had a scene in the kitchen, drinking cocktails and laughing together. She laughed, spit her drink in my face, apologised profusely and did it 3 more times. I loved her. RIP beauty.”

Cue Kutcher with a very simple “dj she’s still alive.”

Rupp then replied in the exact same way as Grace, after realising that the actor was still alive.

The hospital where Roberts is currently being treated, Cedars-Sinai, is yet to make a statement.

Roberts appeared in the 1985 Bond film A View To Kill opposite Roger Moore, as well as Sheena: Queen of the Jungle, The Beastmaster, Body Slam, Night Eyes and of course, That ’70s Show as Midge from 1998-2001.
