Sad news today. Marcia Wallace, Simpsons superstar, voice of teacher Edna Krabappel, has died today. Could this mean that Krabappel is The Simpsons character who dies? Or does this mean they’ll have to write an entirely separate character out of the show?
USA Today reports that Wallace died at 70 years old. She won an Emmy for her Simpsons role in the ’90s. Her Edna laugh (“HA!”) will be missed.
Simpsons producer Al Jean said,
She was beloved by all at The Simpsons and we intend to retire her irreplaceable character.
So perhaps Edna K isn’t the intended deceased character after all…?
