Joanna Cameron, the glamorous actress, fondly remembered as Isis on the Saturday morning series “The Secrets of Isis,” has died at age 70.

Cameron’s co-star on the series, Joanna Pang Atkins, announced her passing on Twitter, writing, “Sad to post that JoAnna Cameron ‘The Mighty Isis’ has flown to heaven.

She suffered a stroke and passed away from complications this past Friday. 

We shared the wonderful lasting experience of making ‘The Secrets of Isis.'” She shared a CBS image from the series of herself, Atkins, and their co-star Brian Cutler.

“The Secrets of Isis,” originally known as simply “Isis,” premiered in 1975, becoming the first American live-action TV series with a woman superhero as its lead — barely beating “Wonder Woman” and Lynda Carter to the punch.

It also featured a rare, prominent supporting role for an Asian woman, Pang Atkins’ Cindy Lee.

After Isis wrapped up, Cameron made guest appearances on shows like McMillan & Wife and The Amazing Spider-Man

Cameron ultimately retired from acting, with her last known role being in the aptly-titled 1980 TV movie Swan Song.
