Life is short and unpredictable, which is why people usually say that it must be lived to the fullest and without regrets. That is what Deborah Carrington did.


Although the actress didn't manage to become one of the most well-known celebrities in Hollywood, she still left her mark in the movie industry. Sadly, she passed away on Friday, March 30, 2018.

The late 58-year-old was known by those who worked with her as a very vibrant and positive woman, and a very hard-working one as well, as reported by Faith Family America.

Although she passed away a few days ago, the details of her death remain unknown; she died at her parent's home in Pleasanton, California. Whether she was sick or not, it is yet to be revealed.


As previously mentioned, Carrington wasn't one of the biggest names in Hollywood, but she had quite a successful career nonetheless: not only did she appear in movies, but also on television.

According to the source, given the fact that she was a little person, she mainly took roles that fit her stature, especially as a stuntwoman for child actors, as she did in Titanic and the Child's Play series.

Some of her other works involved her wearing costumes. For example, she was featured as an Ewok in Return of the Jedi, and played the role of Alien Father in Men in Black.


As reported by Faith Family America, the actress was born in 1959. She attended the University of California and landed her first acting role by showing up to a casting call for a role in the 1981 movie Under the Rainbow.

Some of her television appearances were made on shows such as Living Color, Seinfeld, The Drew Carey Show, Grace and Frankie, Baywatch and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
