Lisa Blount, best known for her role as Debra Winger's friend Lynette in "An Officer and a Gentlemen," has died. She was 53.
Blount was found dead in her Little Rock, Arkansas home by her mother on Monday, says the New York Post. A police report said Blount was clutching a cell phone and blood was seeping from her nostrils. Her husband, actor/producer Ray McKinnon, was out of town at the time of his wife's death.
Blount was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role as Lynette Pomeroy in the 1982 romantic drama, which paired Winger with Richard Gere. In 2001, Blount won an Oscar for the live-action short film "The Accountant," which she co-produced with her husband.
She was also seen in "Great Balls of Fire," co-starring Dennis Quaid, and "Chrystal," with Billy Bob Thornton.
