Lisa Robin Kelly (March 5, 1970 – August 14, 2013) was an American actress best known for her roles on That '70s Show and Amityville Dollhouse. Prior to her role in That '70s Show, she had small roles in several sitcoms.
Lisa Robin Kelly was raised in Southington, Connecticut. She made her debut in a 1992 episode of Married... with Children, "Kelly Doesn't Live Here Anymore". She appeared again in 1997 on episodes of Charmed and Silk Stalkings, as well as in direct-to-video and TV movies, such as Amityville Dollhouse, Late Last Night and Jawbreaker.
Kelly played Laurie, the promiscuous and malicious older sister of Eric Forman on That '70s Show. She left the show after five years; her character was written out of the show "to attend beauty school". She returned to the show in the fifth season in four episodes, but was replaced with Christina Moore in the sixth season. In an interview with ABC News she admitted that "With That '70s Show I was guilty of a drinking problem, and I ran," blaming her alcoholism on the loss of a baby.
In August 2010, Kelly was arrested in North Carolina on a charge of driving under the influence. In November 2010, she pleaded guilty, was fined and sentenced to 12 months unsupervised probation.
On March 31, 2012, she was arrested on a felony charge of corporal injury upon a spouse, and was released on $50,000 bail. The charge was based on a complaint filed by her ex-boyfriend, John Michas. She later made public statements saying that she was the one who had been assaulted, and denied Michas' claim that she assaulted him. The Los Angeles County District Attorney declined to file charges.
In November 2012, police in Mooresville, North Carolina arrested the 42-year-old Kelly and her 61-year-old husband, Robert Joseph Gilliam, after responding to a disturbance at their home. Both were charged with assault and released on bond. She later filed for divorce and a restraining order from Gilliam.
On June 23, 2013, Kelly was arrested for a suspected DUI when law enforcement responded to a call about a parked car blocking a lane of traffic on the I-5 freeway and she failed a field sobriety test.
Days after checking into Pax Rehab House in Altadena, California, Kelly died in her sleep on August 14, 2013, at age 43, while at the facility. On January 3, 2014, the Los Angeles Dept. of Coroner concluded Kelly's death was due to an accidental unspecified oral "multiple drug intoxication". In June 2014, Kelly's estranged husband filed a lawsuit against the rehabilitation center where she was being treated and subsequently died, claiming negligence. Kelly was also survived by her mother, Linda.
