Anne Heche Cause of Death

Anne Heche, best known for her roles in the soap opera Another World as well as films such as Donnie Brasco, Psycho, and Six Days, Seven Nights, has died at the age of 53, according to ET.

While the actress’ heart continues to beat, she is brain dead, which is the legal definition of death in California, according to Heche’s rep. Heche’s life support has not been turned off because doctors are determining whether her organs are viable, as the late actress was an organ donor, according to her rep.

“Today we lost a bright light, a kind and most joyful soul, a loving mother, and a loyal friend,” Heche’s rep told ET in a statement. “Anne will be deeply missed but she lives on through her beautiful sons, her iconic body of work, and her passionate advocacy. Her bravery for always standing in her truth, spreading her message of love and acceptance, will continue to have a lasting impact.”
