Glenne Headly’s death has come very suddenly and unexpectedly. While she was 62 year old at the time of her death, she was not known to be suffering from any life threatening disease.
Though Glenne Headly cause of death is not known, reports suggest that she was taken to hospital around a week or so ago. People who had close access to her family claim that her condition had improved in the last few days, but she suddenly died, leaving behind a son and a grieving husband. A large number of fans are also mourning her death.
62-yyear old actress and stage artist will always be remembered for her stellar roles in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Mr. Holland’s Opus. Headly received Theatre World Awards and four Joseph Jefferson Awards, and was nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards.
Glenne Headly and Ed Begley Jr. were cast in lead roles opposite Josh Hutcherson in Future Man, Hulu’s half-hour comedy pilot from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Headly was to play Diane, Hutcherson’s nurturing, ever-supportive mother. Her love for him, while unyielding and sweet, is also a detriment to his growth. She makes it almost impossible for him to move out; she does all his cooking, cleaning, and laundry, and dotes on him constantly. She has recently retired and is getting back into smoking pot on a regular basis.
Representative in a statement said, “It is with deep sorrow that we confirm the passing of Glenne Headly. We ask that her family’s privacy be respected in this difficult time”. While cause of her death hasn’t been made public, a report from TMZ indicates that she may have died following a complication involving blood clots. She reportedly “checked in to the hospital” sometime last week because of blood clots. A source told TMZ that things seemed to be “getting better but took a turn Thursday.” It is unclear where these blood clots were or what may have caused them. Her funeral details are awaited and we will update as soon as it is available.
