Could Anne Heche’s Last Project Shed Light On Her Death…


The production company for the movie in which Anne Heche stars has opted to hold the premiere despite her terrifying vehicle accident. Despite a recent report that stated that Heche is not expected to survive, Lifetime has decided to continue production on the film “Girl in Room 13.”

A press conference for the Television Critics Association on Thursday included an update on the movie’s release.

“As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition. And all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. We hope that her friends and family stay strong during this difficult time,” said Amy Winter, executive vice president and head of programming for the Lifetime network.

Refrain from inquiring about her health status,” Winter pleaded with the audience.

However, according to information provided to the media by the actress’ family, Heche sustained severe brain injuries that effectively rendered her brain dead. She is anticipated to be taken off life support sometime in the coming week. Heche’s desire to donate her organs, if possible, is the sole reason she hasn’t been removed from the situation. A choice will be made when doctors have determined which organs are suitable for donation.

“This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all started to make a film that would bring attention to the appalling issue of human sex trafficking,” Winter added. “We hope that this film moves you and that you are just as inspired as Anne was to help us with our mission to stop violence against women.”

In the film, Heche plays a woman in search of her daughter after becoming a victim of human trafficking in the film. She shares the screen with Larissa Dias, Max Montesi, and Matt Hamilton.

“All of us, especially Larissa (Dias) who played this victim, are committed to that cause. We talked about it – every single one of us – that this was our mission. And although [Anne] is deeply missed, right now, I will say the film is finished and she did a phenomenal performance – a tour de force much like Larissa,” Winter continued.

On August 5, Heche struck a house in Mar Vista, California with her blue Mini Cooper, igniting it. The Los Angeles Fire Department’s report states that it took 59 firemen more than an hour to put out the fire. Heche was rushed to the hospital with severe burns. There were no other recorded injuries.

A representative for the Ohio native told People on Thursday, “Unfortunately, as a result of her tragedy, Anne sustained a serious anoxic brain injury and is in a coma, in critical condition.” It is unlikely that she will live.

Heche “has a major lung damage needing mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention,” the spokesperson informed the magazine three days prior, adding that “she is in a coma.”
