The gaming community saw cries and grief on January 28th as it was announced that Jeanette Maus died following her battle with cancer.
The actor, aged 39, was most known for their upcoming role in Resident Evil Village. Maus had previously contracted COVID-19 as stated on her fiance’s post on a GoFundMe page setup back in April 2020 to help with funding the extensive medical expenses.
Tributes flooded in on Twitter from many who loved the Resident Evil franchise. Most notable of all was Capcom, the developers behind the Resident Evil games.
“We here at Capcom R&D 1 are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Jeanette Maus, the talented actress who helped bring several different characters, including our witches to the world in Resident Evil Village,” Capcom said.
The John Rosenfeld Studios, a drama school where Maus studied, trained and even coached, released a statement on Instagram following the news.
“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. The world lost a force of nature and we will be feeling that for a long time.”
The Indiependent would like to offer its most sincere condolences to Maus’ family and loved ones at this difficult time.
