Resident Evil Village Voice Actress Sadly Dies At 39

Jeanette Maus, an actor, filmmaker, and teacher, has died at age 39 from colon cancer.

The announcement came from Maus's fiancee and fellow actor Dusty Warren, who broke the news on Facebook according to Deadline. "I'm really sad, but I'm super proud of her," Warren said. "She fought so hard, with tremendous grace and optimism, inspiring myself and I'm sure many of you."


Warren organized a GoFundMe page in October 2020 in an effort to raise money for a machine to help Maus with her medical treatment. She was diagnosed with colon cancer in April 2020, and had also dealt with previous health problems such as Crohn's disease and COVID-19.

Maus recently contributed her voice talents to the upcoming horror game Resident Evil: Village, playing one of the witches and many other characters. Capcom posted its condolences on Twitter, stating, "We here at Capcom R&D 1 are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Jeanette Maus, the talented actress who helped bring several different characters, including our witches to the world in Resident Evil: Village. Our hearts go out to her family and loved ones."


Maus acted in films such as Your Sister's Sister (2011), Dismissed (2017), and Charm City Kings (2020). She also had a few production credits, as well as writer and director. She was an acting coach for ten years at John Rosenfeld Studios, a West Hollywood drama school. The school's Instagram posted a heartfelt message following the news of Maus's death, as well as photographs of the actor.

"She had an indomitable spirit and was hungry to be the best person, the best teacher, the best friend and the best actor she could be," the Instagram post read. "The world lost a force of nature and we will be feeling that for a long time. We are lucky to have known her, and she has touched all of us that knew her."

The youth outreach organization Young Storytellers, for which Maus was a volunteer, also showed its love and support on Twitter. "We are so incredibly saddened at the loss of one of our long-time volunteer actors, Jeanette Maus," the group wrote. "She was an amazing human being, a talented actor and artist, and made a huge impact on our community. She was so generous with her time and her heart, and we will miss her dearly."

Our thoughts are with the loved ones of Jeanette Maus during this difficult time.
