American actress and comedienne, Estelle Harries, is dead.

She died aged 93.

The Mrs Potato Head voice star in the Toy Story franchise died on Saturday evening, with her son Glen Harris confirming the news.

"It is with the greatest remorse and sadness to announce that Estelle Harris has passed on this evening at 6:25 pm,’ he told Deadline.

"Her kindness, passion, sensitivity, humour, empathy, and love were practically unrivalled, and she will be terribly missed by all those who knew her.

Harris played Jason Alexander’s (George Constanza) on-screen mum, Estelle Constanza, in the hit US sitcom Seinfeld.

Her other filmography includes Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Tarzan II, Kim Possible, and ‘The Pinocchio Shop.

In 1952, Harris met window treatment salesman Sy at a dance, and they tied the knot just six months later.

They welcomed their first child, Eric, into the world in 1957, Glen was born four years later and they had a daughter named Taryn in 1964.

Estelle and Sy were involved in a nasty car accident in 2001 after Sar’s car blew a tire and they flipped over twice. They managed to escape any serious injuries.

Sy died last January. Harris is survived by their children and by her three grandchildren.
