Actress Lisa Sheridan has passed away. The “Halt and Catch Fire” star died at her New Orleans home on February 25. She was only 44-years-old, reported Fox News.

The star’s manager, Mitch Clem, confirmed her death to PEOPLE. He said they did not have a cause of death. However, he said that she did not take her own life.

“We all love Lisa very much and are devastated by the loss we all feel. She passed away Monday morning, at home, in her apartment in New Orleans. We are waiting for a coroner's report on cause of death," said Clem.

He added, “The family has unequivocally confirmed that this is not a suicide. Any suggestion to the contrary is absolutely, 100 percent unfounded.”

Sheridan appeared on television more than 30 times throughout her career. In addition to “Halt and Catch Fire,” Sheridan acted in “CSI: NY,” “The Mentalist,” “The 4400,” “Without a Trace” and “Diagnosis: Murder.”

Her friend, and co-star on “Only God Can," Donna D’Errico shared news of her death on Facebook. She wrote about her dear friend and mourned her passing.

“I am sitting here stunned. Lisa and I filmed a movie together 5 years ago and became very close on set and remained close friends after filming ended. It’s so rare to find kind, gentle souls like hers in this industry, this city...even this world,” D’Errico wrote in part. “Truly one of the most genuinely sweet and gentle people I’ve ever come across in my life. She brought a sweetness and bright energy to any room she happened to walk into...even in her darker times.”

Director, magazine editor, and friend of Sheridan, Michael Dunaway, also expressed his sorrow over the loss on social media.

“I met Lisa when she was fourteen years old, over thirty years ago. We were immediately attached at the hip, true soulmates from minute one,” he wrote on Instagram. “For the rest of the days of her life, she was a central part of mine. She was beautiful, obviously, and an immensely talented actor, and a wonderful friend, but more than anything she really did radiate this impossibly bright energy and life. Even in her dark moments.”

Sheridan was previously engaged to "A Million Little Things" star Ron Livingston. Please join us in praying for all those who are mourning her untimely passing. We will update you when a cause of death is released.
