Actress Jeanette Maus, who voiced a number of characters in the upcoming Resident Evil Village has passed away aged 39.
In a post to Instagram announcing her passing, John Rosenfeld Studios said Maus ‘had an indomitable spirit and was hungry to be the best person’.
The actress died after an eight-month battle with colon cancer. She also suffered from Crohn’s disease and had contracted coronavirus.
‘Our hearts are broken today. As many of you now know, our beloved Jeanette Maus passed on to a better place last night at 11:11,’ the post said.
‘Jeanette has been part of the JRS family for almost a decade and became part of the studio’s DNA as a student, teacher, coach and friend. Jeanette was truly an artist, and felt truly grateful to live as an artist. She had an indomitable spirit and was hungry to be the best person, the best teacher, the best friend and the best actor she could be,’ it added.
The post continues:
The world lost a force of nature and we will be feeling that for a long time. We are lucky to have known her, and she has touched all of us that knew her. The enormous pain I feel right now is soothed by the fact that I get to witness how much you saw her and appreciated her. Because it would have been a shame if you had missed it. We will make sure that we honor her and we will keep her in our hearts.
Maus was well known for her voice work, especially as one of the witch sisters that makes up the daughters of House Dimitrescu in the Resident Evil game series.
