Canadian actress Stefanie Sherk, known for her roles in "The Bridge" and "Hashtag: The Series," passed away peacefully at the age of 37.


Her husband of eight years, actor Demián Bichir, shared the news on Instagram earlier today. He said, "it has been the saddest and toughest time of our lives." Bichir added: 

"We don't know how much time it will take for us to overcome this pain. Stefanie's beautiful, angelical and talented presence will be immensely missed."


Bichir thanked their fans for their prayers and support, and ask that the public give both his and Sherk's family time to grieve in privacy.
