Theresa Saldana, an actress and victims advocate, died Monday in Los Angeles at the age of 61.
She worked in movies such as I Wanna Hold Your Hand and Raging Bull.
In 1982, she was stabbed 10 times outside her West Hollywood apartment by a man who had become obsessed with her. She survived the attack, and the man was convicted of attempted murder. But Saldana told NPR the man continued sending her disturbing, threatening letters.
