Lisa Banes, star of Gone Girl, dies a week after being involved in a hit-and-run accident in New York City.
Lisa Banes, a Hollywood actress, died less than a week after being critically injured in a hit-and-run accident in New York.
“We are heartbroken by Lisa’s senseless and tragic demise,” manager David Williams said in a statement.
“She was a woman of great spirit, generosity, and commitment to her work, whether onstage or in front of the camera, and even more so to her wife, family, and friends.
“We consider ourselves fortunate to have had her in our lives.”
Banes, 65, was struck by either a scooter or a motorcycle on June 4 in Manhattan’s Upper West Side near Lincoln Center as she crossed Amsterdam Avenue on her way to visit her alma mater, the Julliard School, according to Williams.
He stated that Banes was hospitalized at Mount Sinai Morningside and that his understanding of the situation was that the actor sustained a traumatic brain injury and was unable to recover.
There have been no arrests made in connection with the crash.
Banes has appeared in a number of television shows and films, including supporting roles in Ben Affleck’s 2014 film Gone Girl and Tom Cruise’s 1988 film Cocktail.
She has appeared on television shows such as “Nashville,” “Madam Secretary,” “Masters of Sex,” and “NCIS.”
