Resident Evil 8 star Jeanette Maus dies after fighting colon cancer

Resident Evil 8 star Jeanette Maus has died at the age of 39, tragically bringing her battle with colon cancer to an end.

The actress and voice-over star was acclaimed for her role on the Resident Evil 8: Village game, bringing several characters to life with her acting.

Maus, who also suffered from Crohn's disease, a type of inflammatory bowel disease, had been diagnosed with colon cancer eight months before her tragic death.

The acting coach died on Sunday, January 24.

Maus' fiancé, Dusty Warren, confirmed the sad news of her death in an emotional statement shared via Facebook this week, admitting he was "proud" of his late partner's strength.

According to Deadline, Dusty wrote: "It is with a shattered-yet grateful-heart that I inform you that Jeanette Maus passed away late last night due to complications of cancer.

"I’m really sad, but I’m super proud of her. She fought so hard, with tremendous grace and optimism, inspiring myself and I’m sure many of you."

In the newest chapter of Resident Evil, Maus voiced the witches of the House of Dimitrescu, known as the "daughters" of famed Lady Dimitrescu.

Aside from her contribution to Resident Evil 8, Maus was also known for her acting in films such as My Effortless Brilliance and Your Sister's Sister.

On Sunday, the school where Maus taught classes, West Hollywood drama school John Rosenfeld Studios, shared a tribute to her legacy.

It read: "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.

"The outpouring of support for Dusty and the expressions of grief for Jeanette are a testament to the both of them and the beautiful community that Jeanette and Dusty have helped create."

The statement went on to promise Maus' family the educational facility would honour her memory in years to come, praising her "indomitable spirit".

It read: "We will make sure that we honor her and we will keep her in our hearts. And Dusty, we are here to hold you up. Jeanette, we love you now and forever."
