Award-winning actor Conchata Ferrell, who played the role of the housekeeper in Two and a Half Men, passed away on October 12, 2020, Monday in Los Angeles. She died in Sherman Oaks Hospital at the age of 77. Her daughter Samantha Anderson confirmed the news of her demise.
Conchata Ferrell passed away on Monday at the age of 77. According to a report by The New York Times, she was hospitalized in December for a kidney infection, which had spread to her bloodstream. Later on, she was in ICU for four weeks after getting a heart attack in May. After moving her to long-term care, they kept her on a respirator and dialysis until her demise in October.
When CBS was reportedly casting for comedy series Two and a Half Men, the character of Berta, Charlie Harper’s housemaid, was written as Eastern European. However, Conchata Ferrell wanted to do it in her voice. She even told the same to the producers, who agreed to it. Moreover, the makers also changed their minds about making Berta disappear after two episodes.
The role of Berta in Two and a Half Men got Conchata Ferrell two Emmy Awards nods for best-supporting actress in a comedy series. She appeared for more than 200 episodes in its 12 seasons. The series showcased Berta as a rustic, mettlesome old hippie, who had a collection of phone numbers of local drug dealers. Moreover, she gave weird nicknames to other characters in Two and a Half Men.
