Jan Hooks Cause of Death –Jan Hooks, an entertainer whose energy for parody and capacity to occupy a character were exhibited during her five years on “Saturday Night Live,” passed on Thursday in New York. She was 57.
Her passing was affirmed by her specialist, Lisa Lieberman, who didn’t give some other subtleties. Some news reports said she passed on of an undisclosed disease. A representative for “S.N.L.” declined to remark.
Ms. Snares joined “S.N.L.” in 1986 and was essential for a cast that is generally viewed as truly outstanding in the show’s set of experiences, close by any semblance of Phil Hartman, Dana Carvey, Jon Lovitz, Nora Dunn and later Mike Myers.
Among the unmistakable ladies she imitated were Donald Trump’s significant other, Ivana, and the televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker, whom she had seen on link in Atlanta before Ms. Bakker and her better half, Jim, turned out to be broadly known. In the wake of leaving the show in 1991, Ms. Snares restored a few times to depict Hillary Rodham Clinton — the principal “S.N.L.” cast part to handle that task.
