Los Angeles [USA], April 23 (ANI): Cast of 1970's popular sitcom, 'Happy Days,' lost one of its own, Erin Moran today. 56-year-old Moran, who was best known for playing Joanie Cunningham, was found unresponsive in her apartment and the cause of death is unknown, reports TMZ. Moran climbed the ladder of success in the 1970s when she was cast as Joanie Cunningham on the widely beloved sitcom, 'Happy Days'. The actress starred as Ron Howard's character's outspoken younger sister before landing a titular role in Happy Days spin-off Joanie Loves Chachie alongside Scott Baio. In 2008, Moran competed on VH1's Celebrity Fit Club. The celebrity's later years were plagued by hardship, as in 2012 it was reported that Erin was homeless and living in hotels after being kicked out of her mother-in-law's Indiana mobile home due to hard-partying. That same year the Happy Days cast settled a royalties lawsuit that awarded Moran, and five of her co-stars $65,000 each. Our heartfelt condolences are with Moran's family. (ANI)
