M*A*S*H star dies, aged 72
Kellye Nakahara has died at the age of 72.
The M*A*S*H star - who played Lieutenant Nurse Kellye in the sitcom which stood for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital - passed away "peacefully" on Sunday at her home in Pasadena, California, following a battle with cancer.
According to TMZ.com, Kellye was surrounded by her family when she died.
She is survived by her husband David Wallet - whom she married in 1968 - their two children Nalani Wallet and William Wallet, and their two grandchildren.
Kellye - who originally wanted to be a watercolour artist - made a name for herself when she landed the role in the Korean war comedy in 1973.
She continued to be a part of the programme until it came to an end in 1983.
The series finale titled Goodbye, Farewell and Amen remains the most-watched episode of television history - with more than 105 million viewers tuning in.
After the comedy wrapped, Kellye went on to bag a role in Clue, Eddie Murphy's 1998 version of Doctor Dolittle and Sabrina, The Teenage Witch.
Her death comes just weeks after M*A*S*H co-creator Gene Reynolds passed away aged 96 at the Providence Saint Joseph Medical Centre in Burbank.
