Lisa Blount Passes Away

by at . Comments

Lisa Blount, an Oscar-winning producer and actress who played Lynette Pomeroy in 1982's An Officer and a Gentleman, has passed away. She was only 53.

Blount was found at her home Wednesday. She more than likely died Monday, Pulaski County Coroner Garland Camper told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

There were no signs of foul play on the premises of her Little Rock, Ark., home.

R.I.P. Lisa Blount (1953-2010).

Blount and her widower, Ray McKinnon, who was not in town, together won the best live-action short film Academy Award in 2002 for their film, The Accountant.

"As one door was seemingly closing in my life, another door opened. And I only have one person to thank for that, my husband Ray McKinnon," Blount said then.

In addition to An Officer and a Gentleman, Blount appeared in films like Great Balls of Fire! and Chrystal, and shows such as Moonlighting and Picket Fences.

An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death.

@ Free Britney, Thank you for informing your readers about the death of Lisa Blount,who I remember so well from the movie An Officer and a Gentlemen. It is my understanding that her husband is the actor who portryed Coach Cotton in 2009's movie The Blind Side.
Since your acknowledgement of her death, I have read 2 seperate
obits. that indicate that she was born in 1957 instead of 1953 which according to the year given is a young woman of 53.
Thank you for the reminder of her accomplishments including being an Academy Award Winner. Please keep us updated with any new information regarding this talented young woman. Thank you!!
