Cynthia Lynn -- the actress who played Helga on "Hogan's Heroes" is dead, and it's believed she was one of only two surviving members of the cast.

Family members tell TMZ Lynn had been in good health but was taken to the hospital Friday because her leg was swelling up.  Doctors told her she had Hepatitis. On Monday night, her organs started shutting down. She died Monday night.

Lynn played Helga -- Klink's secretary -- during season 1, from 1965-66.  

"Hogan's Heroes" was one of the most popular shows of its time, running from1965-1971. We did some checking, and Robert Clary ... who played Cpl. Louis LeBeau ... appears to be the final cast regular still living.

Lynn also appeared on "Mission:Impossible," "The Odd Couple" and "The Six Million Dollar Man."

Lynn was 76 years old.  Cause of death is multiple organ failure.

Dear TMZ,
If you're going to report medical "facts", please verify, at least on Wikipedia, some correct information. Your story is implying she went to the hospital, was told she had hepatitis (something she knew for many years), and she died from multiple organ failure. Huh?????? You need to forget about medical school.

Robert Clary ... who played Cpl. Louis LeBeau is an Auschwitz survivor. He came to my high school in the 80's and spoke about his experiences there.

Don't all get your panties in a bundle. The story originally ran as "The Last Surviving Hogans Heroes Star Dies". It obviously was updated at 5:11pm, I read it well before that time and it placed Ms Lynn as the only one left, no mention whatsoever of Robert Clary.

The staff at TMZ hate putting the facts in a good story unless someone notices.

Amateurs.
