“Above all, she cherished the time spent with her family and friends, and will be deeply missed by those she leaves behind,” it read.

Fans have reached out to Freas’ family, posting messages of love and support on Twitter.

“Prayers, sorry for your loss”, wrote one, and “This is so sad. Leslie’s contribution to the greatest sequel and action/scifi film ever made will never be forgotten,” posted another.
