The cause of Frangione’s death has not been disclosed, adding a layer of mystery to the heartbreaking news.

Frangione had a successful career spanning several decades, captivating audiences with her portrayal of complex characters. One of her most memorable roles was as the icy villain Cecile DePoulignac on ‘Another World’, and as teenage Tara Martin on ABC’s iconic daytime drama.

Frangione’s personal life was as fascinating as her on-screen characters. She was married to her former co-star Christopher Rich, with whom she had an adult daughter named Mariel. The couple divorced in 1996. Rich, who is now remarried, lives in LA with his second wife, Eva Halina. The couple has twin daughters, Daisy Grace and Lilly Hanna, who are 19 years old.
