New York native, Esther Scott was a seasoned character actress who’s been in tons of movies and tv shows throughout the years sadly she has passed away.
One of Scott’s family members told TMZ that she suffered a heart attack last Tuesday at her home in Santa Monica. She was taken to the hospital for treatment but she, unfortunately, passed away on Friday. Esther was surrounded by family and loved ones at the time of her passing.
“She loved what she did. She would get stopped on the street often and people would recognize her, but they didn’t know her name. Hopefully now people will remember her name, her work and the contributions she gave to the entertainment industry.”
