They starred together on the iconic 1975 comedy horror musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

And on Friday, Australian actress Nell Campbell reflected on her close friendship with the late American singer Meat Loaf, who passed away from Covid-19 last month at the age of 74.
Campbell spoke on Studio 10 about meeting Meat Loaf, whose real name is Marvin Lee, before sharing her belief that the Bat Out of Hell rocker would still be alive today if he had gotten the Covid-19 vaccine.

‘He was a little chubby treasure. He was a Texan jumpstart. He seemed adorable. He looked like a big baby, fresh out of the south of America,’ Nell, 68, began.   

The Shock Treatment actress recalled Meat Loaf was ‘adorable’ and had an ‘incredible’ voice. 
Nell recalled seeing the singer at conventions before the Covid pandemic started admired his interactions with his fans.

‘For God sake, everyone, please get vaccinated’: Nell emphasised the importance of the Covid vaccine, which she believes caused the Grammy Award winner an early death

‘I would appear at conventions together pre-COVID and he was totally adorable, fabulous with the fans, as lovely and as him as ever although he was physically not in great shape because he twice had fallen off the stage.’
‘Anyway, the fact is, he was a vocal anti-vaxxer and he had asthma as well as other conditions,’ she added.
Nell then emphasised the importance of the Covid vaccine, which she believes caused the Grammy Award winner an early death.

Complications: The rocker (real name Michael Lee Aday) died on January 20, reportedly from COVID-19 complications, at 74 years of age. It remains unclear whether or not he was vaccinated – he refused to publicly disclose his status

‘For God sake, everyone, please get vaccinated. He would be alive today if he had been vaccinated,’ she said.   
Meat Loaf died last month surrounded by his family. TMZ cites sources who say he passed away after becoming critically ill with Covid-19.
It remains unclear whether or not he was vaccinated – he refused to disclose his status to fans and urged them all not to talk politics when coming to his shows – and his family has not revealed if he died at his home in Nashville or in the hospital.
