    Barbara Harris, Actress in `Freaky Friday,' `Family Plot,' Dies at 83
    Actress Barbara Harris, known for roles in films like the original "Freaky Friday" and multiple stints on Broadway, died on Tuesday at age 83, the Chicago
    Sun Times reported. The actress was in Scottsdale, Ariz. when she died of lung cancer.

    Harris launched her career when she co-founded the Second City comedy troupe in
    Chicago, Ill., later participating in the now world-renowned group's first ever
    show. But her Second City performances were just the beginning of Harris' flourishing career on the stage.

    In 1967, Harris scored a best actress Tony award for her chameleon performances
    as Eve, Passionella, and Princess Barbara in "The Apple Tree." She was also nominated for two other Tony awards, including a best featured actress nod for her Broadway debut in "From the Second City" and another best actress nod for her work as Daisy Gamble in 1965's "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever."
