Alaina Reed-Amini, 1946-2009


Alaina Reed-Amini, who played the wonderful Olivia on "Sesame Street" as well as starring on "227", passed away from breast cancer today at the age of 63. She was a part of my childhood that I will never be able to forget and I owe her a big "Thank You" for the hours of enjoyment that she, along with her cast mates, provided me as a young child. She will be missed by all those she helped entertain and educate.

Oh no! Olivia was one of my favorites on Sesame Street (after Mr. Hooper)!

Old Sesame Street episodes are the best :)

Oh that's so sad. My boys and I watch Sesame Street every morning, and even though Olivia isn't on new eps I remember her from when I was a kid.
