Actress Anne Heche has been peacefully taken off life support,” the star’s rep revealed on Sunday evening.

This comes two days after the 53-year-old actress died from injuries sustained in a recent car crash. And after an organ recipient match was made and she would be removed from life support Sunday.

Information surrounding which of Heche’s organs were donated, as well as who the recipient is, is not immediately known.

A rep for Heche confirmed the actress’ death in a statement Friday on behalf of her friends and family: “Today we 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,” the statement continued. “Her bravery for always standing in her truth, spreading her message of love and acceptance, will continue to have a lasting impact.”

Although Heche was legally dead according to California law at the time of the announcement, it had “long been her choice to donate her organs,” so Heche’s heart was still beating and she was still on life support in order to allow OneLegacy Foundation enough time to find recipients who will be a match.

After Heche’s death, her ex-husband, Coleman “Coley” Laffoon, shared a teary, heartfelt tribute to the late actress. He also gave an update on how their 20-year-old son Homer Laffoon is coping with the loss.

“I loved her and I miss her, and I’m always going to,” he said in an Instagram Reel, adding: “Homer is okay. He’s grieving, of course, and it’s rough. It’s really rough, as probably anybody can imagine. But he’s surrounded by family and he’s strong, and he’s gonna be okay.”

Heche also shared 13-year-old son Atlas with ex-partner James Tupper, who previously paid tribute to the actress shortly before her death. “Love you forever,” Tupper, 57, wrote in the caption with a broken heart emoji, sharing an image of her from their 2006 ABC show Men in Trees.

Heche had several projects in the works, with her upcoming Lifetime movie Girl in Room 13 premiering Sept. 17. She was also set to star opposite Dermot Mulroney in the upcoming horror-thriller Full Ride and had a recurring role in All Rise on OWN.
