Respected Broadway star and three-time Tony nominee, Marin Mazzie, has died after battling ovarian cancer for three years. Known most for her roles in Ragtime and Passion, young stars are incredibly saddened by the news.
“Incredible human being, loving wife, dedicated family member, devoted friend and Broadway star, Marin Mazzie passed away this morning at 10:10am in the comfort of her New York City apartment surrounded by family and close friends,” her publicist said to People.
Marin was diagnosed with Stage IV ovarian cancer in May 2015. “Over that time, while fighting her own fight, she took it upon herself to help spread awareness of Ovarian Cancer, and to help find an early detection for the disease, of which, currently, there is none,” her publicist wrote.
