Actress Lisa Lynn Masters has died at age 52.
“As to her husband and family’s wishes, we hope that the industry can mourn her death without details. In these darkening days, we hope those who have had the pleasure of knowing her will see how brightly she shined and will find that light within themselves and continue to share it with others — just as she would have,” her agent Christopher Silveri said in a statement emailed to USA TODAY.
The actress who was best known for her work on Ugly Betty, Kimmy Schmidt, and most recently Nashville, was found dead in her hotel room in Peru following an apparent suicide. A Lima, Peru, newspaper, reported that she was in the city for a modeling event. Her body was found on Tuesday.
A Go Fund Me page was set up by the actress’s friends to help the family with expenses.
“Lisa’s genuine warmth, generosity and tenacious strength will be deeply missed,” the page reads.
“Lisa’s beloved husband William is shocked and grieving her sudden loss. In the midst of his mourning, William faces daunting financial challenges, including the substantial funeral and transport expenses for Lisa in and between Peru and the United States.”
“Our hearts go out to our dear friend William. We will miss Lisa very, very much.”
Masters most recently appeared as Dr. Laurel Kennedy on CMT’s ‘Nashville.’ Funeral arrangements are pending.
