Kirstie Alley ha goduto di una grande carriera a Hollywood ed è sempre stata una figura riconoscibile sia in televisione che nel cinema. Forse il suo ruolo più noto è arrivato negli anni ’80, quando ha interpretato il ruolo di Rebecca Howe nella serie di successo “Cheers”. Alley ha anche recitato in diversi film, come “Senti chi parla”, “Ci vogliono due” e “Drop Dead Gorgeous”. Secondo il suo profilo IMDb, Alley ha recitato nel suo ultimo film nel 2020, interpretando la parte di Suzanne nel film Lifetime, “You Can’t Take My Daughter”.
Several stars like Jamie Lee Curtis have taken to social media to remember the late star, who worked very hard up until her death.
Kirstie Alley dressed up as a baby mammoth on The Masked Singer
Kirstie Alley worked in the months leading up to her death, with her most recent television appearance coming seven months before she died — likely before she received a diagnosis of colon cancer. According to the New York Post, Alley appeared on "The Masked Singer" in April. She opted for a cozy-looking baby mammoth costume and sang her rendition of Patsy Cline's "Walkin' After Midnight." She also belted out Meghan Trainor's hit "Me Too" in another episode of the series, in addition to Cher's "The Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)."
Alley spoke about her appearance and why she chose to join the fun-filled show in a video clip. "I came on "Masked Singer" because about 10 years ago, I realized I always had to keep mixing my career, my life up or it was going to get really mundane or really boring fast," she said. "So I guess I finally got up the nerve to do it." Alley confessed that she did not love wearing the costume, but shejoked that it made her sing "like a cat in heat."
The star took to Instagram to promote the show on a few occasions, including in May, around the time she appeared on it. "Who is it going to be????" she asked in a post that included photos from the show. A few months later, she used her final Instagram post to promote the new season of the series.
