Lisa Sheridan, who was featured in the television series "Invasion" and "Halt and Catch Fire", has died. She was 44 years old.
Sheridan's director, Mitch Clem, confirmed his death at Deadline on Wednesday night.
"Lisa died Monday morning. She was at home in New Orleans. The cause of death is not known at the moment. We are waiting for the coroners, "said Clem in a statement. "Obviously, we were all blinded by this devastating loss. Lisa was deeply loved. We are heartbroken. "
Sheridan worked as an actress for over two decades and accumulated dozens of credits, including in the 2018 movie "Strange Nature" and in the television series "CSI: Miami" and "Still the King".
The actress' friends also shared the news of her death on social media, including actress Donna D'Errico, who worked with Sheridan on the 2015 film "Only God Can."
"I just received news that my dear friend, actress Lisa Sheridan, has passed away. She was found Monday morning. I am sitting here stunned. Lisa and I filmed a film together 5 years ago and became very close on the set and remained close friends after the end of the shoot, "wrote D'Errico on Facebook.
"It's so rare to find kind and gentle souls like hers in this industry, this city … even this world. Really one of the most truly sweet and kind people I have ever met in my life. She brought a sweetness and a brilliant energy into all the rooms she was in … even in her darkest moments. I am devastated by this loss. I had just spoken with her and everything seemed great and she seemed happy and in a good mood. Everyone who knew her loved and loved her. Goodbye and good night my angel … I will miss you terribly. Please send prayers for his family. "
Despite the social media reports that Sheridan may have committed suicide, Clem claimed that his death was not the result of a suicide.
"The family has unequivocally confirmed that it was not a suicide. Any suggestion to the contrary is absolutely 100% unfounded, "he said.
People magazine first announced the news of Sheridan's death.
