Gone Girl actor Lisa Banes dies 10 days after being hit by a scooter in New York | Hollywood


Gone Girl actor Lisa Banes died 10 days after being injured by a hit-and-run driver in New York City, police said.

The 65-year-old Lisa Banes, who was struck by a scooter or motorcycle while crossing a street on June 4, died Monday at Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital, a police department spokesperson said. The driver did not stop, police said.

Lisa Banes appeared in numerous television shows and movies, including Gone Girl in 2014 and Cocktail with Tom Cruise in 1988. On television, she had roles on Nashville, Madam Secretary, Masters of Sex and NCIS.

She acted on stage regularly, including Broadway appearances in the Neil Simon play Rumors in 1988, in the musical High Society in 1998 and in the Noel Coward play Present Laughter in 2010.

Her manager, David Williams, said Lisa was hit as she was crossing Amsterdam Avenue on the way to visit the Juilliard School, her alma mater.

Lisa lived in Los Angeles and was married to Kathryn Kranhold, a contributing reporter for the Center for Public Integrity.

Friends and colleagues mourned Lisa on Tuesday on Twitter.

“Just busted,” singer Jill Sobule tweeted. “Lisa Banes was magnificent, hilarious, and big-hearted – always helped me though the hard times. She was so beloved by so many.”

Actor Seth McFarlane said he was deeply saddened at the death of Lisa, whom he worked with on his TV series The Orville.

“Her stage presence, magnetism, skill and talent were matched only by her unwavering kindness and graciousness toward all of us,” Seth tweeted.

Police have made no arrests.
