R.I.P. Zelda Rubinstein
Today Hollywood lost one of it's most distinctive character actresses: 76 year old , 4' 3" Zelda Rubinstein. Rubinstein best known as the diminutive psychic Tangina,who comes to the aid of a suburban family besieged by the paranormal in Tobe Hooper and Stephen Speilberg's horror classic Poltergeist.
Zelda Rubinstein was also well know as a tireless HIV/AIDS awareness activist and worked to raise the visibility and dignity of little people in society as well as in the entertainment industry.
Zelda will be sorely missed.
