Reports say the beloved actress, “was surrounded by family and loved ones at the time she died. Her sister, Shaun, tells us, “She loved what she did. She would get stopped on the street often and people would recognize her — but they didn’t know her name. Hopefully now people will remember her name, her work and the contributions she gave to the entertainment industry.”

Working since the 80s, Scott was a fixture in some of the biggest movies and shows. Remember when she starred in 2016’s Birth Of A Nation alongside Nate Parker, Gabrielle Union and Aja Naomi King?

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.
