Is the actress sandy duncan still alive..if so whatever happened to her?

Yes, Sally Duncan is still alive. Her most recent TV appearance was in the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit December Solstice (Season 16, Episode 16) which was aired on February 25, 2015. She played the role of Judge Virginia Farrell.

Actress/comedienne/vocalist Sandy Duncan's climb to show business' upper echelon did not come easy. The star of a popular situation comedy, Funny Face, from 1971 until early 1972, Duncan had her career come to a near stop when surgery, for a tumor on the optic nerve, left her blind in one eye.

Undeterred by her handicap, Duncan resumed her career with the same determination that had taken her from her birthplace in Henderson TX to Broadway, movie, and television fame. Although Funny Face, which was renamed the Sandy Duncan Show upon Duncan's return in autumn 1972, was canceled after the season, Duncan remained one of America's most flexible entertainers.

The recipient of an Emmy award for her performance in ABC-TV mini-series, Roots in 1977, she returned to Broadway to star in the revival of J.M. Barre's Peter Pan. After limiting herself to rare television appearances for nearly a decade, Duncan starred in the sitcom the Hogan Family from 1988 until 1991. She appeared in a touring revival of Chicago in 1999.

In February 2016, Sandy Duncan has made a hasty exit from Broadway musical “Finding Neverland,” with its producers — led by Harvey Weinstein — battling rumors that she quit with a statement that her absence is only temporary.

Duncan, who famously played Peter in the 1979 Broadway production of “Peter Pan” as well as in multiple touring productions of that show, had appeared in “Neverland” for just five performances before she left.

“The producers of Broadway’s ‘Finding Neverland’ regretfully announce that the beloved stage and screen actress Sandy Duncan, who recently joined the magical production in the role of Madame Du Maurier, must take an immediate, yet temporary, leave of absence from the show due to family obligations,” producers said in a statement.
