She was later found unconscious and taken to a hospital, where she remained hospitalized for a few more days before eventually passing on Friday.
The report added that she was surrounded by family and loved ones at the time she died. Her sister, Shaun, speaking on Esther Scott death, said: “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.”
Esther Scott had a massive resume, having appeared in at least 73 films and shows dating back to the ’80s. She’s perhaps most well known for her role as Bridget, one of Nat Turner’s relatives, in 2016’s ‘Birth of a Nation.’ Esther’s been in several other projects, however.
She’s also been the voice Shodu in the ‘Star Wars’ animated spin-off, “Ewoks” — and had a memorably hilarious scene in “Boyz n the Hood.” She played the grandmother of a girl who hooked up with Tre, Cuba Gooding Jr.’s character.
