Esther Rolle

The role of Florida Evans originally appeared on the Norman Lear-produced series Maude from (1972-1974). But after getting spun off into Good Times, Esther Rolle demanded that Florida be given a husband when Lear initially envisioned the Evans family to be fatherless. After six seasons on the groundbreaking series, Rolle appeared on TV shows like The Love Boat, Fantasy Island and Touched by an Angel. On the big screen, she appeared in Driving Miss Daisy, Rosewood and Down in the Delta. Sadly, Rolle died on November 17, 1998 due to complications from diabetes.
