Joan Copeland autopsy: What is the cause of her death?

Joan Copeland was reported dead on January 4, 2022. She died at the age of 99 and her cause of death is believed to be natural or old age.

Her son, Eric Kupchik, confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter, noting that Copeland died in her sleep at her home in Manhattan, without the cause of death being known for now.

The actress, sister of playwright Arthur Miller, chose Copeland as her stage name to distinguish herself from him when she made her Broadway debut in 1948 with the play “Sundown Beach.”

“I didn’t want to (use) Miller for obvious reasons, I didn’t want to take advantage of my brother’s name,” she explained in an interview with The New York Times in 1981.

In  the cinema, she appeared among other films in “The Goddess” (1958), a film allegedly based on the former wife of Arthur Miller and sister-in-law of Copeland, Marilyn Monroe.
