It's a privilege for her to have a page on this website.

As soon as I saw her face, I knew exactly who she was! It's the tiny 'medium' woman from the 'Poltergeist' trilogy who sacrificed her life so that the evil Cain could pass into the light - and ultimately stop going after innocent little Carol-Anne, nasty, revolting piece of work that he was!
I can't watch the third 'Poltergeist' movie without getting extremely upset because that poor child, Heather O'Rourke, who played Carol-Anne, died mysteriously while that film was being shot.
I have seen a handful of programmes about films which have carried curses with them, and the 'Poltergeist' movies have been top of the list for unexplained early demises, claiming five perfectly healthy lives from the original cast. The films 'The Omen' and 'The Exorcist' also featured in the line-up of 'cursed' films.
One thing I'm sure about though is that Zelda was a thoroughly good-hearted little lady, with not a bad bone in her 51-inch body, and she was broken-hearted at the passing of her young actress friend Heather.
I am going along with 4ft3 for this much-missed star.

Are you going to make a tag for shortest women also Rob?
Editor Rob: there's probably well-known females who are under 5 foot I've yet to add, I will have to look and see who is missing.
