Fans of movies from the 1980s are sad about Kymberly Herrin’s death.
An obituary from the Santa Barbara News-Press says that actress Kymberly, who was known for her roles in the 1984 movies Ghostbusters and Romancing the Stone, has died at the age of 65. No one knows for sure what killed Kymberly, but she died “peacefully” on October 28 in Santa Barbara, California.
In her obituary, it was written that Kymberly, who was born in Lompoc, California, had a life full of travel, sailing, and accomplishments. Kymberly was in movies, but she was also a model who “adorned the covers of more than a dozen magazines, both local and international.”
According to Entertainment Weekly, one of the things she did as a model was be a Playboy Playmate. Kymberly was named Playmate of the Month in March 1981. In the movie Beverly Hills Cop II, Kymberly’s real-life role as a playmate was shown.
In movies, Kymberly is best known for playing a paranormal character in Ghostbusters who had a scene with Dan Aykroyd that was very personal. Even though the project came out in 1984, Dan recently thought about the time he worked with Kymberly.
