Alexis Arquette, an established actress and long-time advocate of transgender rights, has died at the age of 47.
Her brother Richmond said Alexis died at 12:32 early Sunday morning while listening to the David Bowie classic "Starman."
Born Robert Arquette, Alexis was part of an acting family dynasty that included her brothers David and Richmond and sisters Rosanna and Patricia. Alexis transitioned to a female in 2006 and documented her journey in the film Alexis Arquette: She's My Brother.
She had key roles on the big screen in both Pulp Fiction and The Wedding Singer, and she also appeared on TV shows, including VH1's The Surreal Life and Bravo's Top Design. Her most famous role, however, is deemed by many to be that of transvestite Georgette in the adaptation of the novel Last Exit To Brooklyn.
