Per Deadline, Wilson’s disease is a rare genetic condition that “causes copper to accumulate in vital organs and can cause liver, brain and kidney problems.”
The former professional wrestler is best known for portraying the comedic Big Alice on GH, starting in 2002. When not working as a live-in maid, Big Alice hilariously moonlit as a pro wrestler under stage name The Dominator.
Williams’ last appearance on GH was in 2014. Former co-star Nancy Lee Grahn shared an Instagram tribute to Williams, writing, “Best kiss evah!” under a GH clip featuring her character in disguise. “RIP dear Bergen.”
