Vanessa Marquez has sadly died at the age of 49.

Prior to portraying Wendy on ER, Marquez played Ana Delgado in the 1988 Ramón Menéndez-directed drama Stand and Deliver. In May 2010, her Star Wars fandom was featured on a local news program about the day, "May the Fourth Be With You". "Women who don't play the came lose career" I did.

Her death is under investigation, which is standard practice for police-involved shootings.

On August 8, Marquez posted what would be her final Facebook status update, accusing Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, of hypocrisy.

Last year, Marquez publicly accused the Oscar-winning actor and director of playing helping blacklist her after she spoke out about alleged harassment on the set of ER, including being subjected to racist and sexist remarks. "I did", she tweeted at the time. 'I was an actor and only an actor. Clooney has said he had no idea what she was even talking about.

Vanessa Marquez was once a series regular on the NBC hospital drama "ER", and appeared in multiple films including "Stand and Deliver". Clooney said that as an actor he had no role in the show's casting decisions. She went on to bit roles in the '90s sitcom Malcolm & Eddie, and a little-known TV movie Fire & Ice.

She also frequently wrote about her various illnesses and claimed she had celiac disease, chronic pain and immune disorders.
