Frances Sternhagen, the star of ‘Sex and the City’, a US comedy series, has died at the age of 93.
The news of her passing was shared by John Carlin, her son, via a tribute on his Instagram page on Wednesday.
Carlin described his mother as a “remarkable artist and human being” who was deeply admired by many.
He added that he cherishes their close bond as mother and son.
“Mom. Frances Sternhagen. On Monday night, Nov 27, she died peacefully at her home, a month and a half shy of her 94th birthday. She was beloved by many,” Carlin wrote.
“I am very lucky I was able to call her my mom, my friend, and my song and dance partner. We were together last week, and we spoke Monday afternoon and said how much we loved and missed one another.
“She always encouraged my writing and enjoyed my singing. I’ll fly back very early the next day. Fly on, Frannie. The curtain goes down on a life so richly, passionately, humbly and generously lived.”
Sternhagen made her acting debut at age 25 at the Cherry Lane Theater.
In 2002, she earned an Emmy nomination for her role as Bunny MacDougal in ‘Sex and the City’.
She was married to Thomas Carlin, a fellow actor whom she first met at Catholic University, from 1956 until his death in 1991.
Frances Sternhagen is survived by six children, nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
