In a statement to RadarOnline.com, Tori said: “Farrah was an inspiration to all and had the most amazing spirit. She was one of the kindest, sweetest, and funniest women I’ve had the privilege of knowing and I’m proud to have called her a friend. Her smile will be greatly missed. My thoughts are with her family
Meanwhile, Close friend and casting director Sheila Manning placed Farrah in her first acting job. In an exclusive statement to RadarOnline.com, Manning recalls, “The Farrah that I knew was innocent, sweet and much too nice for someone as beautiful as she was. I was delighted to cast her in her first job. Not surprisingly, it was a short film and she was in a bathing suit. She was a talented actress but mostly she was a kind, sweet girl on screen and off and I think that is what we will all remember.”
