Lisa Banes, ‘Gone Girl’ actress, has died following hit and run accident

She was 65.

“We are heartsick over Lisa’s tragic and senseless passing,” David Williams, her supervisor, stated in a declaration. “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.

Banes is survived by her wife, Kathryn Kranhold, who paid tribute in a touching post on Twitter.

Banes suffered severe head trauma after being struck by a scooter that ran a red light in Manhattan’s Upper West on June 4. She was hospitalized immediately following the incident, police said.

“The scooter then ran away the place, continuing north bound. There are no arrests and the examination stays continuous,” the NYPD said in a release.

Williams previously told CNN his understanding was that Banes was on her way to visit Juilliard, her alma mater, and Lincoln Center Theater when she was injured.

Banes, a native of Ohio, began her acting career in the 1980s, according to IMDB. She starred alongside Tom Cruise in the 1988 film “Mixed Drink” and played the concerned, prickly mother Marybeth Elliott in the 2014 film “Gone Woman.” Her TV appearances include roles in “Royal Discomforts,” “Masters of Sex” and “Nashville.”
On phase, she has actually carried out in the plays “Upper class,” “Arcadia” and “Reports” and won a Theatre World Award for her role in “Recall in Anger,” according to Playbill.
