The US entertainer Anne Heche has passed on, seven days after she was fundamentally harmed in an auto collision.
The news was confirmed by a delegate for her family who said in a proclamation:
“We have lost a bright light, a kind and most joyful soul, a loving mother, and a loyal friend. Anne will be deeply missed but she lives on through her beautiful sons, her iconic body of work, and her passionate advocacy. Her bravery for always standing in her truth, spreading her message of love and acceptance, will continue to have a lasting impact.”
On Friday evening agents for Heche, 53, affirmed she was “brain dead”, which under California regulation is the meaning of death. It was reported before in the day Heche would be removed from life support. It is perceived her pulse was being kept on due to the chance that a proper organ gift could occur.
On Friday night, Heche’s oldest child, Homer, 20, made an announcement online in the interest of himself and his half-brother, Atlas, 13.
“My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom,” he told People. “After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully, my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom,” he continued. “Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me. I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time,”
“Rest In Peace Mom, I love you,” Homer Heche closed.

Heche’s career first began back in the 1990s when she first received a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress Drama Series in 1991. Since then, she starred in many movies such as I Know What You Did Last Summer, Volcano (one of my favorite movies), Six Days, Seven Nights, and more recently in 2021 playing a role in 13 Minutes, and in 2022 playing a role in Hardboiled.
However, there is much more to her than just her famous roles in films. For example, she appeared in several magazines and was often on the covers including some big ones such as People and Entertainment Weekly.
Many had trusted Heche would recuperate from her injuries after a marketing expert for the entertainer detailed her in a “stable” condition in the wake of crashing her vehicle into a house in Los Angeles on 5 August. Firemen said she had been addressing them as she was released from the destruction and taken to the clinic.
Yet, the entertainer’s condition quickly deteriorated, and subsequently passed away. On 8 August delegates posted an update, that she was in “extremely critical condition” and had slipped into a state of unconsciousness. On Friday, her family said in an explanation that she was not expected to make it and that she was being kept in a coma to decide whether her organs could be given for a good cause.
