Stunned and deeply saddened by the loss of Elizabeth Peña. So many great roles she inhabited, but I will forever remember her as Pilar in John Sayles’ Lone Star (1996).
Peña died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday. A cause of death has not been given.
She is survived by her husband, two teenage children, as well as her mother and sister.
I leave you with Sam driving through the night to reach Pilar. Wherever she is, I’m sure the Alamo has been forgotten.
