Heather O'Rourke, 1975–1988 (American child actress)

* Heather O'Rourke ― the child star of the Poltergeist film trilogy who died aged 12 from complications due to septic shock ― had Pluto closely conjunct her Ascendant and in a Mystic Rectangle. Poltergeist III was released posthumously. O'Rourke's tomb in Los Angeles is a scheduled stop for "Haunted Hollywood" tours. How very, very, mystic Pluto.


Heather O'Rourke was discovered at the age of five by director Steven Spielberg while eating lunch with her mother at the MGM commissary. Spielberg cast her as Carol Anne Freeling, a little girl abducted by ghosts in the 1982 horror film Poltergeist. She would go on to reprise the role of Carol Anne in the second and third installments. In addition to her roles in the Poltergeist film series, O'Rourke also had a recurring role on Happy Days from 1982 to 1983, and made several television guest appearances. O'Rourke died at the age of 12 of cardiac arrest and septic shock caused by a misdiagnosed intestinal stenosis on 1 February 1988.
