Benson, 90210 Actress Caroline McWilliams Dies

Today 8:59 AM PST by Breanne L. Heldman

The small screen has just lost one of its familiar faces.

"Benson" and "Soap" star Caroline McWilliams died Feb. 11 at her home in Los Angeles from complications of multiple myeloma, her family told the Los Angeles Times. She was 64-years-old.

McWilliams began her career on the soap opera "Guiding Light" in 1969 followed by a stint on "Another World" before she broke into prime time with "Soap". That was soon followed by her most famous role, Marcy Hill opposite Robert Guillaume on "Benson".

In 1982, McWilliams married Michael Keaton. They had one son, Sean Douglas, but divorced in 1990. Around that time, she appeared in the movie Mermaids and on Beverly Hills, 90210, as the mother to Jamie Walters' character.

McWilliams also enjoyed the theater, frequently performing onstage and directing live productions.

She also starred with Eric Idle in a short lived show called "Nearly Departed"....
