Robyn Griggs, soap star and film actress, dies aged 49

Robyn Griggs, a television and film star best known for her roles on the soap operas “Another World” and “One Life To Live,” has died aged 49.

The star’s official Facebook account announced the sad news in a statement Saturday afternoon.

“Hello everyone, It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce the passing of Robyn,” the message began.

However, she no longer suffers and would like us to remember that and the fond memories. I will never forget how open she was to tell her story and accept that I helped her tell it. She wanted to help people and spread the word of her story to do it. I was honored to do this. RIP my friend, I love you and smile when I think of you.”

Griggs – who married golf professional Mark Wiley in 2013 – has been very transparent with friends and fans when it comes to her health concerns, as she was diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer in 2020 and revealed four new tumors last month.

“I have 4 new tumors. 2 new tumors on my liver, one on the abdominal muscle and a large one on the right lymph node,” Griggs wrote on her account on July 7. I told them whatever it took. I’m up for the fight.”

The account also confirms that the actress moved to a hospice on August 11 — just two days before her death.
