Actress Skye McCole Bartusiak, who played Mel Gibson’s youngest daughter in “The Patriot,” died Saturday at her home in Houston, her mother said Sunday. She was 21.
“We lost our girl,” Helen McCole Bartusiak told CNN.
While investigators have not determined a cause of death, Bartusiak had been suffering from epileptic seizures in recent days, according to her mother.
“She was a kind and really beautiful girl,” her mother said.
