Lisa Banes has died after being hit by a scooter earlier this month in NYC.
The star’s rep confirmed her death Monday, telling Entertainment Tonight:
“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.”
Lisa Banes was 65.
RIP Lisa Banes, a superb actress and much beloved, especially by the theater community. I only knew Lisa a bit, but I treasured her performances and her elegant, generous style.
