Updated on January 20th, 2023 by Abigail Thomas: Sadly, Lisa Robin Kelly passed away in 2013. Before she got caught up in drug abuse and the law, Kelly was best known for portraying Laurie Forman in the hit sitcom That '70s Show. She was re-cast during the show after getting into trouble, and actress Christina Moore stepped in for the final seasons to play the role of Eric's older sister.

A spinoff of the television show just aired on Netflix titled That '90s Show. The show features many guest appearances of the original cast, but the character of Laurie Forman is not included in the sequel series. Creators of That '90s Show did not want to disrespect the memory of Lisa Robin Kelly by having her character in the new show.

But she became a household name alongside Mila Kunis, Laura Prepon and Ashton Kutcher on That's 70s Show. Kelly shone as the sassy Laurie Foreman - the older sister of Eric - played by Topher Grace.

But fans were left confused when she abruptly left the show midway through the third season. At the time the official line was that her character left home to "attend beauty school." She returned to the show in the fifth season, but only appeared for four episodes. Kelly was eventually replaced by Christina Moore in the sixth season. In an interview with ABC News, Kelly admitted that she lost her job on That 70s Show because of a drinking problem. Kelly attributed her abuse to trauma following a miscarriage.
