Elizabeth Norment, best known for playing Frank Underwood’s steadfast secretary on Netflix’s hit political series House of Cards, died Oct. 13 at New York’s Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, her sister Kate told The Hollywood Reporter. She was 61. No other details were available.

“Everyone at House of Cards is deeply saddened by Elizabeth’s passing,” House of Cards showrunner Beau Willimon said in a statement. “She was a talented actress, a warm soul and a good friend to us all.” Kevin Spacey, who worked closely with Norment in her role as Nancy Kaufberger, responded to her passing over twitter.

RIP Elizabeth Norment. We all loved her and she leaves a void in all of us here at HoC’s.

A Yale Drama School alum, Norment worked steadily in films, television and theater for over 30 years with roles in St. Elsewhere, Law & Order, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, ER and Party of Five. Norment’s recurring role on House of Cards was her most significant and high profile.
