Did Barbara Eden Die? Death News – Is She Dead Or Still Alive?

Still alive, Barbara Eden isn’t dead.

However, there are rumors of her death online. The gossip is likely to be fake since media publications haven’t covered the death news. Likewise, the Wall Street Journal published an article on 18 January 2022, revealing how Johnny Carlson helped launch her acting career.

Further, the official confirmation is yet to surface online. Hence, the credibility of rumors is questionable. The actress’ old age seems to be the reason for it.

Although there is a lack of details on the subject, we know a few things about Barbara herself. Her first public performance came as a church choir singer. Likewise, she sang in local bands at nightclubs for $10 per night as a teen. Then at 16, she joined Actor’s Equity and studied singing at San Francisco Conservatory of Music and acting at Elizabeth Holloway School of Theatre.

In 1949, Barbara graduated from Abraham Lincoln High School and later studied theater at City College of San Francisco for a year. She then went on to be 1951 Miss San Francisco.

Beginning her journey with The Johnny Carson Show in 1955, she starred on 91 projects throughout her career that surpassed well over six decades. Despite that, many remember her for the role of Jeannie in the sitcom I Dream of Jeannie. 

Eden received the 1972 Bravo Otto Germany Award and the 2003 TV Land Award.
