Maila Nurmi: Vampira Exits the Stage

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jan 15, 2008 in Horror |

I’m sad to report that Maila Nurmi (known to us fanboys as Vampira) has passed away. Her career highlights include starring in Ed Wood’s classic epic Plan 9 From Outer Space and had her own TV show in Los Angles. This is the notice from her website:

“Vampira” Maila Nurmi

In the early morning hours of January 10th, 2008, while sleeping peacefully, Maila Nurmi suffered a cardiac arrest and passed away. Maila had recently turned 86 and was in seemingly good health and spirits. In lieu of flowers, anyone wishing to make a donation in Maila’s name may contact the Much Love Animal Rescue. Thank you for everything, Maila, and God bless.

…and here’s a wonderful fan tribute that was just put onto YouTube:

Thanks to Peter Bernard.
