Anne Heche’s final movie Girl in Room 13 still set for release after star’s death
Anne Heche’s final movie, Girl In Room 13, is still set to be released in September, weeks after her death. The actress, best known for starring in movies such as Six Days and Seven Nights and Donnie Brasco, was declared brain dead on Friday August 12 after she suffered fatal injuries in a horrific car crash on August 5. The network behind her final on-screen appearance, Lifetime, has since confirmed that it will continue to launch the movie in September as originally planned.  Director, Elisabeth Rohm praised Heche’s final performance as ‘phenomenal’ as she tackles the gritty role of a mother who’s daughter is abducted into human sex trafficking. Elisabeth began: ‘We’re all so dedicated to the cause, stopping violence against women… all of us, especially Larissa [Dias] who played this victim, are committed to that cause.’ The director added that the cast had spoken about the importance of standing up against abuse, before praising Heche for her dedication to the role, as she remained in a coma.   ‘Although [Heche] 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,’ she continued. After Heche’s death, Elisabeth shared a tribute to the star and commended her for how ‘committed’ she was throughout her life to protect women and be ‘a voice against abuse.’ She told People: ‘Every single morning, [Heche] would come to set and she said, “We will not stand for abuse!” And she would pump her fist and have this just beautiful, bright smile. ‘She was so committed to making an incredibly deep, profound, important performance.’Elisabeth also reflected on Heche’s personal life as she shared: ‘Anne was very open about the abuse she sustained in her
