“Happy Days” actress Erin Moran has passed away at the age of 56, CBS News has confirmed.
Moran played Joanie Cunningham on the hit show “Happy Days” and its short-lived spinoff “Joanie Loves Chachi” with Scott Baio.
Around 4:07 p.m. Harrison County dispatch in Corydon, Indiana, received a 911 call for an unresponsive female.

An autopsy is pending and further details are not available at this time.
“Happy Days,” a sitcom set in Milwaukee, was broadcast from 1974-1984 and also starred Ron Howard, Joanie’s kid brother, and Henry Winkler as Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli.
Moran made guest appearances on series such as “Murder, She Wrote” and “The Love Boat.”
Winkler took to Twitter late Saturday to express his condolences — along with other celebrities.
