Jill Stevens, 1996

Lisa Robin Kelly, who played Jill Stevens for 26 episodes on "Days of Our Lives" in 1996, has passed away at the age of 43. In the storyline, Jill was a woman hired by Franco Kelly in the hopes of breaking up Bo and Hope Brady. After leaving "Days", Kelly went on to greater fame on the FOX sitcom "That '70s Show" as Laurie Forman, sister of Topher Grace's lead character Eric. Kelly was born on March 5, 1970 in Southington, Connecticut.

Her manager, Craig Wyckoff, says Kelly died Wednesday at a Los Angeles addiction treatment facility she had entered early this week. No official cause of death was disclosed. Unlike some of her co-stars — Topher Grace, Ashton Kutcher and Laura Prepon — Kelly fell out of the spotlight after appearing on the sitcom until she started making headlines for personal troubles.

She was arrested in November along with husband Robert Joseph Gilliam in connection with a disturbance at their home in Mooresville, North Carolina. In June, she was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after her car stalled in Burbank, California.
