Lisa Banes, the 65-year-old Hollywood actress, has passed on after a hit-and-run collision last week in New York.
Prominent for her role as Marybeth Elliott in ‘Gone Girl’ (2014), as well as Bonnie in Tom Cruise’s film ‘Cocktail’ (1988), Banes was struck by a scooter while crossing the road on June 4.
She was said to have died on Monday at Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital after suffering traumatic brain injury and was unable to recover.
According to NBC News, David Williams, her manager, broke the news in a statement on Tuesday.
“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. We were blessed to have had her in our lives,” the statement read.
The police are yet to make any arrests.
Banes has appeared in a plethora of television shows and movies such as ‘A Cure for Wellness’, ‘Six Feet Under’, ‘Nashville,’ ‘Madam Secretary,’ ‘Masters of Sex’, and ‘NCIS.’
Tributes have continued to pour in for the deceased on social media platforms as words of her demise spread.
