Lisa Banes, a film and television actress whose credits include films such as Gone Girl and A Cure for Wellness, has died 10 days after being struck by a driver in a hit-and-run in New York City. She was 65.
Banes died Monday, June 14, at Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital, according to the New York Police Department.
The NYPD previously told THR that a pedestrian was hit on June 4 by “an unknown scooter or motorcycle” near the corner of West 64th Street and Amsterdam Avenue. The scooter, according to the NYPD, didn’t stop and fled the location. The pedestrian, later identified as Banes, was taken to the Mount Sinai hospital.
Born in Ohio and a graduate of Juilliard, Banes had a number of film credits including Young Guns, A Cure for Wellness, as well as Gone Girl, in which she played Marybeth Elliott, mother of Amy Elliott (Rosamund Pike). She also starred in such television series as The Orville, Nashville, Royal Pains and Masters of Sex.
On Broadway, Banes played Cassie in the Neil Simon play Rumors in 1988 and Margaret Lord in the musical High Society in 1998. She also appeared in Accent on Youth in 2009, and most recently in the 2010 revival of Present Laughter.
The Orville‘s Seth MacFarlane was among those who took to Twitter to remember Banes, writing, “I am deeply saddened at the news of Lisa Banes’ passing. We had the good fortune to work with her on The Orville this past year. Her stage presence, magnetism, skill and talent were matched only by her unwavering kindness and graciousness toward all of us. A tremendous loss …”
