Jackie Burroughs passes away

Jackie Burroughs, the stage and screen actress best known for her role as schoolteacher Hetty King on TV's Road to Avonlea, has died at the age of 71.


The series would not have been the same without her - she was one of a kind!

Here's one of my fave episodes where Hetty lectures Gus Pike. Part 1/5

  2. She was a very accomplished actress who surprised me everytime I saw her perform with her realistic portrayals of fiesty women. I enjoyed her in Road to Avonlea, loved her in the Grey Fox, but she was unforgettable from the first moment I saw her in Twelve and a Half Cents. She may have been British-born, but she became Canadian through and through, and I will miss her very much!

  3. Sad to hear it. Used to love watching Road to Avonlea in the afternoon when I was younger. I got series one from my sister on DVD, should get around to watch it in Hetty's honour!
