With maren's death, is There Any actors ou the Wizard of oz still alive ?

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls061321507/

 

Out of date list from Jan 2018 but unlikely they have all died in last 5 months. As you will see he was the last main actor but another 8 people were 'in' the film (some very loosely).

According to wiki Caren Marsh Doll who was Judy Garland's stand in is still alive.

The remaining cast members are uncredited, the majority being munchkins. The two exceptions are Ambrose Schindler (IMDb) who played a Winkie Guard and was a stunt double, and Caren Marsh Doll (IMDb) who was Garland's dance stand-in. Depending on how much effort Warner Bros. decides to put into the 80th Anniversary Celebrations in 2019, we might get a better gauge of who is actually alive. They did host celebrations for the 70th and 75th so if there are any living cast members, even if they were uncredited, they might track them down for interviews.

TMZ says "over a week ago", which Wikipedia has interpreted as "exactly a week ago" i.e. 30th May. However the NY Times is probably correct.

Definitely Dinklage, in terms of sheer fame. But in terms of - who should deadpoolers look up? 

 

Possibly Felix Silla, aka Cousin Itt?

 

Edit: From Wikipedia "He also played an Ewok in the film Return of the Jedi". Nailed-on obit.

Malcolm Dixon can be added to the list, but in terms of most recent or recognizable, Drinklage and Davis.
