Former child actress Cammie King Conlon, best known for playing the doomed daughter of Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara in ‘Gone with the Wind,’ has died.

Conlon passed away Wednesday from lung cancer in Fort Bragg, California, her home for the last 30 years, family friend and spokesperson Bruce Lewis confirmed. She was 76.

Little Cammie King was four years old when she starred as Bonnie Blue Butler, daddy’s little girl whose tragic death after falling from a pony tore the legendary lovers apart in the 1939 classic.

She was also the voice of Faline the Doe in 1942’s ‘Bambi,’ before leaving show business behind.

“I’m a very lucky person,” Conlon told the Press Democrat in Santa Rosa, California, last year. “[GWTW] has added dimension to my life. Of all the little girls, they picked me.”
