Marlene Clark — who played Lamont’s fiancée, Janet, in the 1970s sitcom “Sanford and Son” and Ganja Meda in the 1973 horror film “Ganja & Hess” — has died.
Clark passed away May 18 in her Los Angeles home, friend Tamara Lynch told The Hollywood Reporter.
She died the same day as her “Slaughter” co-star and NFL legend Jim Brown, who was 87.
Her cause of death wasn’t immediately available.
“RIP beautiful actress Marlene Clark. . . It was a delight to work with you…,” Demond Wilson, who portrayed Lamont Sanford, tweeted Tuesday.
Wilson listed her birthdate as Dec. 19, 1949. The Hollywood Reporter reported she was born in Harlem on Dec. 19, 1937.
Clark worked as a model before getting into acting.
Her first major movie was 1968’s “For Love of Ivy” alongside Sidney Poitier.
She went on to appear in 1969’s “Putney Swope,” directed by Robert Downey Sr.; “The Landlord” in 1970; as well as “Slaughter” and “Night of the Cobra Woman” in 1972.
Other notable works include “Enter the Dragon” (1973), “The Beast Must Die” (1974), and “Switchblade Sisters” (1975).
The Hollywood Reporter noted she left acting in the late 1980s, becoming the manager of a restaurant in Venice Beach, California. She had also opened her own clothing store.
Clark was married to “Star Wars” actor Billy Dee Williams from 1968 to 1971. The Post contacted a rep for Williams for comment.
