Gone Girl actress Lisa Banes has died 10 days after being injured in a hit-and-run accident in New York City.
Banes, 65, who was struck by a scooter or motorcycle while crossing a street on June 4, died on Monday at Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital, a police department spokesman said.
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, NCIS, The Orville and China Beach.
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…

Terribly sad news about Lisa Banes. She was a consummate actor who commanded the stage. We worked together on China Beach & I wish there had been more. My heart goes out to her wife and family. pic.twitter.com/gn9XRKhT7H

My heart is so sad at the passing of Lisa Banes. I had the fortune to work with Lisa on GONE GIRL, and she was vibrant, keen, and wildly charming. Basically she would have intimidated the hell out of me if she hadn’t been so truly kind. Love to her wife, family and many friends. pic.twitter.com/pYxu4mg42S
