Hall-Amini was best known for her roles as Olivia, Gordon’s kid sister, on the long-running children’s television series, “Sesame Street,” and as Rose Lee Holloway on the NBC sitcom, “227.”

Born in Springfield, Ohio, Hall-Amini began her career in Broadway and off-Broadway productions. She was among the original cast members in the 1974 off-Broadway production of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” Hall also appeared in productions of “Hair,” “Chicago” and “Eubie!”

In addition to stage and television work, according to Wikipedia, Hall-Amini also appeared in several films, including 1992’s “Death Becomes Her” opposite Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep, “Cruel Intentions” (1999), and the 2007 independent feature “I’m Through with White Girls (The Inevitable Undoing of Jay Brooks).”

Hall-Amini was married three times. Her first marriage, which produced two children, ended in divorce. In Dec. 1988, she married actor Kevin Peter Hall after meeting him when he guest-starred on “227.” She was widowed in 1991 after her husband died of pneumonia-related complications after contracting AIDS. At the time of her death, Hall was married to Tamim Amini.
