LIMA, Peru – Actress Lisa Lynn Masters was found dead inside a room at the Nuevo Mundo hotel in Lima, Peru, on Tuesday, Peru21 reports.

The 52-year-old actress was reportedly found inside the closet of her room after she apparently hanged herself with a skirt. Officials say they found anti-depressants in her room.

Masters has starred in “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” and has also had roles on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Ugly Betty” and “Gossip Girl.”

A representative for Masters released the following statement:

As to her husband and family’s wishes, we hope that the industry can mourn her death without details. In these darkening days, we hope those who have had the pleasure of knowing her will see how brightly she shined and will find that light within themselves and continue to share it with others — just as she would have.

Family and friends of the late actress have set up a GoFundMe in her name, which has surpassed their goal of $30,000.
