Actress Lisa Banes, known for her work on Broadway and in films such as Gone Girl and Pumpkin, has died following a hit-and-run accident that took place earlier this month in New York City. She was 65.
Banes’ manager, David Williams, confirmed the news of her death to NBC News on Tuesday morning, sharing, “We are heartsick over Lisa’s tragic and senseless passing.”
“She was a woman of great spirit, kindness and generosity and dedicated to her work, whether on stage or in front of a camera and even more so to her wife, family and friends,” he added. “We were blessed to have had her in our lives.”
Banes obtained “a traumatic brain injury and was unable to recover,” Williams told the outlet.
