Actress Jeanette Maus, who voiced several characters in the upcoming horror survival game Resident Evil Village, has passed away at the age of 39.

Maus died after an eight-month battle with colon cancer. The actress also suffered from Crohn’s disease and had recently been diagnosed with COVID-19.

In a post on Instagram, John Rosenfeld Studios announced Maus’s passing “Our hearts are broken today. As many of you now know, our beloved Jeanette Maus passed on to a better place last night at 11:11.”

“Jeanette has been part of the JRS family for almost a decade and became part of the studio’s DNA as a student, teacher, coach and friend. Jeanette was truly an artist, and felt truly grateful to live as an artist. She had an indomitable spirit and was hungry to be the best person, the best teacher, the best friend and the best actor she could be,” it added.

On Twitter, Capcom wrote, “We here at Capcom R&D 1 are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Jeanette Maus, the talented actress who helped bring several different characters, including our witches to the world in Resident Evil Village. Our hearts go out to her family and loved ones.”

Maus was well known for her voice work, especially as one of the witch sisters that make up the daughters of House Dimitrescu in the Resident Evil game series. She also appeared in Charm City Kings, which was released on October 8, 2020, by HBO Max, and co-wrote the 2008 film My Effortless Brilliance, an independent dark comedy directed by Lynn Shelton.

Resident Evil Village, the tenth major installment in the Resident Evil series, is a sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. The game is set to be released on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, and Xbox One in May this year, with a playable demo already available on PlayStation 5.
