Pat Carroll, Voice Actor Who Played Ursula In The Little Mermaid, Has Died At 95

She had nearly 100 acting credits to her name.

Pat Carroll, the voice actor who starred as Ursula in The Little Mermaid, has sadly died at 95.

The Emmy Award-winner was recovering from pneumonia when she passed away, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The actor's daughter wrote on Instagram that she wanted fans to honour her in a very specific way.

"It is with a heavy heart that I write that my mother, Pat Carroll, has passed away at the grand old age of 95," she said.

"We ask that you honor her by having a raucous laugh at absolutely anything today (and everyday forward) because besides her brilliant talent and love, she leaves my sister Kerry and I with the greatest gift of all, imbuing us with humor and the ability to laugh…even in the saddest of times.

"Someone (apologies as I’ve forgotten who) sent me this meme a while ago. Truer words were never written and this is how we'll always remember her."

Alongside the tribute, she posted a photo of her mother that has text saying: "There is nothing more beautiful than Pat Carroll laughing."

In addition to working on The Little Mermaid, Carroll also had nearly 100 acting credits.

She won an Emmy ward for her work on Caesar's Hour, before becoming a regular on the sketch show Make Room for Daddy with Danny Thomas.

She also appeared on The DuPont Show with June Allyson as well as The Danny Kaye Show, The Red Skelton Show and The Carol Burnett Show.

She won a Grammy Award and a Drama Desk Award for her one-woman show Gertrude Stein, Gertrude Stein, Gertrude Stein.

RIP Pat Carroll.
