Star of “The Young and the Restless,” Marla Adams, has died.

The actress, who won an Emmy, was 85 years old.

The news was shared on Thursday by Matt Kane, who is in charge of media and talent for The Young and the Restless.

According to him, she died in Los Angeles, California.

The role of Dina Abbott Mergeron on the famous soap opera made Marla famous.

She was born in Ocean City, NJ, on August 28, 1938.

In 1956, she graduated from high school and went to New York City to attend The American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

Back in the late 1950s, Marla was a Broadway star.

She was in The Visit with Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne.

She went back to the stage in 1961 to be in Splendor in the Grass with Natalie Wood.

Starting in 1968 and ending in 1974, she played Belle Clemens on the CBS daytime drama The Secret Storm.

Later, in 1982, she started her job on The Young and the Restless as Dina Abbott Mergeron.

But because her contract was up, she was only on the show for three years.

That didn’t stop her from appearing on the show as a guest in 1991, 1996, 2008, and 2017.

Once more, Dina came back in 2020, and fans saw her sad death.

For her part in the drama show, Marla won a Daytime Emmy.

As Marla filmed her last scene, she talked about what it was like to be on the show.

“Of all the characters I’ve played from The Secret Storm to Broadway, this has been the most astonishing, amazing part I’ve ever had the privilege to play,” said she.

“YOU WILL BE MISSED” Fans wrote about it on X, which used to be Twitter.

“Fantastic as Dina!” “Rest in peace, Marla Adams. You will be missed by Young and the Restless fans,” one commented.

“OMG, how sad,” said someone else. Really liked this Emmy winner. Take it easy.”

Another fan wrote, “Sending my deepest condolences to her family, friends, and everyone who loved her.”

Four people said, “She was incredibly talented.”
