CULT FACTION is sad to report that actress Marcia Strassman has passed away at the age of 66 following a battle with breast cancer.

“Curb Your Enthusiasm” director Bob Weide, a long-time friend of Strassman’s, was one of the first to break the news of her passing. He wrote on Twitter, “So sad that a sweet friend, kind person & wonderful actress Marcia Strassman lost her brave battle with cancer today.”

Marcia was born on April 28, 1948 in New York City and as an actress hit the cult radar with roles like Julie Kotter in Welcome Back Kotter, and as Diane Szalinski in the 1989 feature film Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Honey, I Blew Up the Kid and  the 3-D film spin-off Honey, I Shrunk the Audience! which was shown at several Disney theme parks through mid-2010. She also clocked up notable appearances as nurse Margie Cutler in M*A*S*H, Time Express, The Rockford Files, The Love Boat, Brave New World, Booker, Magnum P.I, and the television series Tremors.
