Actress-musician Alexis Arquette died early today at the age of 47.
Best known for her roles in Pulp Fiction, The Wedding Singer, and Last Exit to Brooklyn, Arquette was a visible and outspoken member of the transgender community who made her transition public 10 years ago, documenting her experience in 2007’s Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother.
More than that, though, you could tell that she was a force of life – an undeniable presence that made anywhere she was crackle with excitement.
She will be missed.
Update: It was reported on Sept. 12, that Arquette passed away from complications related to AIDS.
