Kymberly Herrin, the former Playboy playgirl who came into the limelight in mainstream media after her appearance in the 1984 Bill Murray-starrer, Ghostbusters, died at the age of 65 on October 28 at her home in Santa Barbara, California. The report was first published by Santa Barbara News-Press.
Herrin played a ghost in the movie that ends up in an intimate scene with the character Ray Stantz portrayed by Dan Ackroyd. The actor later quipped that he wouldn’t have minded had the scene gone on for a little bit longer.
Regarding the costume Herrin wore in the scene, director John Bruno said, “And then we had shot these elements of this ghost. We made this tight-fitting gossamer gown she was wearing, sort of flowing, and she was shot against black. To make a mold, everybody sort of rubbed Vaseline delicately around in places and she finally grabbed one of the guys and said ‘Let’s get on with this!’ and grabbed his hand”.
Another movie she featured in besides Ghostbusters was Romancing the Stone, in which she played a character called Angelina.
