Lisa Robin Kelly (March 5, 1970 - August 14, 2013) was an American actress best known for her roles on That '70s Show and Amityville Dollhouse. Prior to her role in That '70s Show, she had small roles in several situation comedies.


Lisa Robin Kelly made her debut in a 1992 episode of Married... with Children entitled "Kelly Doesn't Live Here Anymore". She appeared again in 1997 in the episode "Breaking Up Is Easy to Do". She has also appeared in shows such as Murphy Brown, Charmed and Silk Stalkings, as well as in direct-to-video and TV movies, such as Amityville Dollhouse, Late Last Night and Jawbreaker.

Kelly played Laurie, the promiscuous older sister of Eric Forman on That '70s Show. She left the show after five years; her character left to attend beauty school. She was kicked off the show due to her unreliability as she was using cocaine at the time.

She briefly returned to the show in the fifth season in four episodes, but was replaced with Christina Moore in the sixth season. In an interview with ABC News she admitted that "With That '70s Show I was guilty of a drinking problem, and I ran."

Following her departure from the show, Kelly appeared in a 2005 film called The Food Chain: A Hollywood Scarytale.

Legal issues

On March 31, 2012, Kelly was arrested on a felony charge of corporal injury upon a spouse, and was released on $50,000 bail.
