What?! No! How can this be?!
Skye McCole Bartusiak brought the world to tears with her role in The Patriot, and sadly she has passed away.
The cause of death isn’t known, but the 21-year-old reportedly died in her sleep at her home in Texas. A spokesperson for the family said:
"[Skye was] a brave and caring young woman… [She is] deeply missed by her family and friends."
