Actress Lisa Sheridan Dead at 44

Actress Lisa Sheridan, known for her roles on "Invasion" and "Halt and Catch Fire" has died at the age of 44.

Sheridan’s manager Mitch Clem confirmed her sudden death, telling People magazine, “We all loved Lisa very much and are devastated by the loss we all feel. She passed away Monday morning, at home, in her apartment in New Orleans. We are waiting for a coroner's report on cause of death.”

While there are rumors that she took her own life, Clem insisted, “The family has unequivocally confirmed that this is not a suicide. Any suggestion to the contrary is absolutely, 100% unfounded.”

Sheridan’s friend Donna D’Errico mourned her death, writing on Facebook, “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 movie together 5 years ago and became very close on set and remained close friends after filming ended.”

“I am devastated by this loss. I had just spoken with her and everything seemed great and she seemed happy and in good spirits. Everyone who knew her loved and adored her. Goodbye and goodnight sweet angel…I will miss you terribly,” D’Errico continued. “Please send up prayers for her family.”

Filmmaker and friend Michael Dunaway, who she called “Big Brother,” added on Instagram, “She was beautiful, obviously, and an immensely talented actor, and a wonderful friend, but more than anything she really did radiate this impossibly bright energy and life. Even in her dark moments. And she had plenty of those, especially over the last few years. During these later years she took to telling me, ‘You're the greatest big brother a girl could ever have.’ It was how we ended each conversation. I treasured it then, and I treasure it even more now knowing I'll never hear it again, this side of the river. So good night, my sweet little sister. “
