Actress Romy Walthall, who starred alongside John Travolta and Nicolas Cage in Face/Off, died last month after suffering a cardiac arrest. She was 57.
Face/Off star Romy Walthall has died at the age of 57.
The actress died suddenly on May 19 after suffering a heart attack, her son Morgan Krantz has shared.
The actor and filmmaker confirmed his mum’s death to Variety.
She’ll be remembered for playing John Travolta’s eccentric secretary Kimberly in his 1997 cult classic Face/Off, which he starred in opposite Nicolas Cage.
Romy was also well known for her portrayal of Molly McNulty in 1989 horror movie The House of Usher.
Morgan and Romy’s other children, Theodore Dudley and Isabella Israel, all shared moving tributes to her.
Isabella posted on Instagram: “I’ve resigned myself to the fact that there will never be any appropriate combination of earthly words to accurately describe my mother. You just had to be there to get it.
“She was everything at once. She was my first love. She was the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen and she was wicked and fun and light and dark and she possessed the kind of magic that you truly just don’t see.
“I will always always always love you ferociously.”
Theodore penned: “The love and wisdom you gave me will never expire. You will always be an inspiration to me. You taught me to never give up. You taught me to not take no for an answer. You taught me to be true to myself.
“You always rooted for me, because you knew I can do anything. You instilled in me my warrior spirit. Thank you for bringing me onto earth. Love you. Rest in peace. I’ll see you in the stars.”
Romy is also survived by her sister and mother.
A memorial service was held in her honour in Malibu last week, with her loved ones giving her a beautiful send off.
