Alaina Reed-Hall: “227” And “Sesame Street” Actress/Singer Loses Her Battle With Cancer

December 21, 2009

For those of you old schoolers out there, you probably remember the actress Alaina Reed-Hall as “Olivia”.

She was the funky and spunky Sesame Street resident with a songbirds voice.

She also played the down-to-earth neighbor of Marla Gibbs and Jackee Harry on the NBC show, 227.

In recent years, she has been seen in a slew of commercials.

Alaina passed away on December 17.  The news of her death traveled slowly, but now we know.  She was 63.

Trivia: Alaina was once married to Kevin Peter Hall, who was played the Predator in the “Predator” film franchise, as well as plain big- foot in “Harry and the Hendersons”.  They were married until his death.
