‘Ghostbusters’ star and Playboy Playmate Kymberly Herrin dead at 65

Playboy Playmate and “Ghostbusters” actress Kymberly Herrin has died at 65.

Herrin passed away peacefully in her home in Santa Barbara, California, Oct. 28, according to an obituary in the Santa Barbara News-Press.

Herrin’s niece, Theresa Ramirez, shared a photo on Facebook of her aunt with her two late sisters and the caption: “They are all together now. Aunt Kymberly Herrin. I love you.”

Herrin was a model and actress, appearing on several magazine covers as well as in movies, including her memorable part as the Dream Ghost in 1984’s “Ghostbusters” — notably in an infamous, sensual scene with Dan Aykroyd’s character Ray Stantz.

Herrin — who also appeared in that year’s “Romancing the Stone,” which starred Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito — is additionally remembered as one of a handful of models who strut their stuff in the music video for ZZ Top’s hit song “Legs.”

The model was featured on the cover of Playboy’s September 1982 and September 1983 issues. Herrin served as Playmate of the Month for Playboy’s March 1981 edition. She also played a Playmate in the 1987 film “Beverly Hills Cop II.”

A cause of death has not been revealed, but the family asked for donations to the American Cancer Society in Herrin’s honor “to further the research of the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.”
