    "Saturday Night Live" great Jan Hooks died today at the age of 57, a representative for the actress and comedian confirmed to ABC News.

    Hooks was part of the show from 1986 to 1991 and worked alongside some of the best talent that the legendary live show had ever seen, including the likes of Mike Myers and Chris Farley. On the sketch comedy show, she played icons from the era, including Hillary Clinton, Tammy Faye Bakker and Sinead O'Conner.

    She was featured in films like "Coneheads" and "Pee-wee's Big Adventure," along with roles in game-changing TV programs like "Designing Women," "3rd Rock from the Sun" and "The Simpsons." Her most recent role was in 2010 on "30 Rock."

    Hooks was born in 1957 in Decatur, Georgia, and according to IMDB, she was a member of the legendary Groundlings comedy troupe in Los Angeles at the beginning of her career.

    Before "SNL," she was featured in 1980 on "The Bill Tush Show," which aired on the network that eventually became TBS and later on the hit HBO show "Not Necessarily the News" from 1983 to 1984.

    The cause of death was not revealed today.

    What a shame, she was a great skit actress, it's too bad she was never able to really break into movies and star. :rip:

    Some of best work was on the old Bill Tush Show. She was a great skit actress. Funny and attractive. What a shame.
