Corinne Camacho (1941-2010)

Actress Corinne Camacho, who played Lieutenant Regina Hoffman in “L.I.P (Local Indigenous Personnel),” passed away last month at the age of 68.

Camacho’s acting career began in 1967 with an episode of The Wild Wild West; she had a recurring role on Medical Center from 1969 to 1972 and played a fembot on The Bionic Woman and The Six Million Dollar Man in 1976. According to TV.com, Camacho (who also went by Corinne Michaels) was born in 1941.

    I worked for a brief time for Corrine’s agent, Dorothy Day Otis many years ago. In fact, one day she brought her kids to the office and I babysat for them while she went out on a call. I was so surprised to learn she had passed away two years ago. She was such a nice person. We called her by her real name, Gloria.

    I just watched the MASH episode, “LIP”, in which this actress played opposite HAWKEYE and was so impressed by her performance that I needed to research her background. So sorry to learn she has passed.

      Hey Ben. maybe you’ll get to like the Air Force. Zooming all over the sky and shouting ROGER and WILCO and everything. Maybe it won’t be so bad.
