I woke up to some very sad news yesterday morning (Aug 6th). It seems that "Texas Chainsaw" star Marilyn Burns died in the night at her home in Houston, Texas at the age of 65.
Best known for playing teenager Sally Hardesty in Tobe Hoopers original 1974 film, she also starred in his follow up movie "Death Trap" (AKA "Eaten Alive") and made guest appearances in subsequent Texas Chainsaw movies, most recently the 2013 3D reboot, which was a follow up to the original 74 film.
She was apparently discovered by a family member during the night of August 5th. The exact cause of death is unknown at this time.
RIP Sally, you will be sadly missed.
