In 2017 I had the pleasure of interviewing the cast of Brave on NBC and that included Anne Heche. She was a delight, so funny and kind. Just 25 mins ago I read they took her off of life support, such a loss. #RIP
Anne Heche is dead at the age of 53.
Heche died after being pulled off life support. She'd been in a coma since August 3rd, when she drove her car into a Los Angeles home, causing both the vehicle and the home to catch on fire. Heche suffered severe burns, a significant pulmonary injury and brain damage.
A preliminary toxicology report indicated the presence of cocaine in her system at the time of the crash, and police were considering filing a felony DUI charge and possible hit-and-run charges for another accident on the same day if she survived.
