Actress and model Lisa Lynn Masters, who appeared in Gossip Girl, Ugly Betty and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, has died aged 52.
According to reports Lisa was found dead in her room at the Nuevo Mundo hotel in Lima, Peru – where she had been on a modelling assignment – earlier this week.
Her family have not confirmed the cause of death, although reports in the local press suggested that she took her own life.
A spokesperson for the actress said in a statement to E! News: ‘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.’
A GoFundMe page has been set up by friends of Masters to raise money to bring her body back to the US, and to help her husband William Brooks – who is a healing arts practitioner – pay funeral expenses.
