Alexis Arquette Dead

Alexis Arquette Dead at 47

Actress-singer Alexis Arquette, whose TV work included guest stints on Roseanne, Friends and Californication, died Sunday morning in the presence of her family and friends, TMZ is reporting.

Arquette’s resume also included the films Threesome (1994) and The Wedding Singer (1998), the latter of which found her playing a Boy George impersonator, as well as Season 6 of VH1’s reality show The Surreal Life.

Arquette, the sister of actors Rosanna, Patricia and David, lent visibility to the transgender community long before Caitlyn Jenner arrived on the scene. She documented her transition from male to female in the 2007 film Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother. 

An exact cause of death is not known, but she reportedly had been battling an illness.
