Lisa Lynn Masters has reportedly been found dead inside her room at the Nuevo Mundo hotel in Lima on Tuesday, according to Peru21.

According to the news site, the actress, 52, was found inside the closet of her room after she had hanged herself with her skirt. Officials, who said had been struggling with depression, found anti-depressants in her hotel room.

Masters, who starred in an episode of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, has also had roles on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Ugly Betty and Gossip Girl.

Friends and family have set up a GoFundMe page in Masters’ name and had surpassed their goal of raising $30,000 by Thursday.

“Our dear friend Lisa Masters passed away tragically and unexpectedly in Lima, Peru on November 15, 2016,” Ani Mason, who set up the account on behalf of Master’s husband, William Brooks, wrote on the page. “Lisa’s genuine warmth, generosity and tenacious strength will be deeply missed.”

“Lisa’s beloved husband William is shocked and grieving her sudden loss,” Mason continued. “In the midst of his mourning, William faces daunting financial challenges, including the substantial funeral and transport expenses for Lisa in and between Peru and the United States.”
