Actress Lisa Masters of ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ is found dead in Peru; suicide suspected
Lisa Masters, an actress who appeared in shows including “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Law & Order: SVU,” was found dead earlier this week in her hotel room in Peru, her manager confirmed to the Los Angeles Times on Friday. She was 52.
Police in Lima told the Associated Press that they are investigating the case as a possible suicide. Her cellphone included directions on how to reach her family in the United States, the AP said Thursday.
“In these darkening days, we hope those who have had the pleasure of knowing her will see how brightly she shined and will find that light within themselves and continue to share it with others — just as she would have,” manager Christopher Silveri said via email from New York.
Masters’ acting resume also included episodes of “Gossip Girl,” “Ugly Betty,” “Nashville’ and “Royal Pains,” in addition to several film roles and more TV work.
“As to her husband and family’s wishes, we hope that the industry can mourn her death without details,” Silveri said.
Masters, whose body was found Tuesday, was in Lima for a modeling job, Peru21 reported.
