Adrienne Barbeau reacts to the death of her former "Maude" costar Bea Arthur.
"I loved Bea dearly and her passing brings a great sadness. We've lost a unique, incredible talent. No one could deliver a line or hold a take like Bea, and no one was more generous or giving to her fellow performers. She was truly one of a kind and her friendship was a cherished blessing for me," she said in a statement to ET.
Adrienne played Bea's divorced daughter in the '70s sitcom.
A family spokesman told the Associated Press that Arthur passed away at her home on Saturday. The spokesman said she was battling cancer, but did not elaborate on the cause of death.
